Postcards and other ephemera

At the bottom of a closet, I found a box of postcards and birthday cards that K & I both collected over the years. What to do with them? Eighty percent of me says throw them away; but nostalgia’s pull can be strong.



They don’t really take up a lot of space…or do they?

No, just a shoebox. At the same time, I don’t have a lot of space.

I keep those sorts of things if the messages in them are interesting. If it’s just a birthday card with a signature, it goes. If it’s a postcard with a note and a hand-drawn arrow pointing to where the sender slept the night before, I keep it.
