I recently found a bunch of art postcards I had purchased during a trip to Europe last December. I had intended to send the cards to my friends, but I forgot about them until I unpacked my suitcase after I returned home. So they ended up in a shoebox in my closet for the past 6 months.
Each postcard featured a portrait of a woman, as painted by one of my favourite artists, Albert Chavaz. I went to his exhibit at the Gianadda Foundation in Martigny, Switzerland. I was with my dad and my brother, and it was a refreshingly happy moment for the three of us, during an otherwise strained and difficult vacation together. And finding those cards today gave me that really good feeling again. For a couple of minutes, I felt alpine fresh.
It's weird how I ended up sending these postcards to myself in the future.
