Grateful for YOU
I’m thankful that in this great big blog world we have connected.
If you’ve read my about page, you know I’m a writer and an antiques dealer/collector. Ephemeron fascinates me. That’s why I chose this particular greeting today.
Not familiar with the term?
Ephemera (the plural form) refers to something transitory or short-lived. Items like pamphlets, notices, tickets, postcards or greeting cards designed to be useful or important for only a short time. In this age of technology, we’re losing ephemera. Especially old postcards like these.
Each card undoubtedly has a story. Who was Ray and why did he send a Thanksgiving card to Baby? Were Marguerite and Grandma feuding and needed to join hands? There’s definitely a story connect to that one.
The writers among us could probably plot some compelling stories based on these old postcards. I think that’s why I find ephemeron so intriguing.
But just for today, let’s forget about writing.
Thanks for showing up today to read my blog.
I’m going to enjoy my blessings today.I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving day with your family and friends.
See you here on the 26th.
