How's this place work?

If you could take a little mental holiday and go to any imaginary place, where would you go?
And what would you do while you were there?

Send me a postcard, handmade or otherwise, from an imaginary location. It can be a place from a book or a movie or a piece of music, or some other world you made up. On the other side, write and tell me what you've been doing on your vacation from reality.

All postcards to be addressed to:

Wish I Were Here
6219 156th Ave. NE
Redmond, WA 98052
United States

I'll scan a selection of postcards and post them to the blog for all and sundry to enjoy.

Any questions?

Ask them here.

Q: Why are you doing this?
A: 'Cause it's fun!

Q: Where'd you get the idea?
A: From a number of places.  I'm fond of mail art and postcards, participate in Postcrossing, follow the PostSecret blog, and generally read like mad.  I was one of those kids who lived in books, and who sometimes wished I could escape the troubles of reality and visit a fictitious world. (Maybe you were one, too... or maybe you still are.)  One day, as I was typing along minding my own business, all these ideas came together in a huge multi-car pile-up in my head.  So I started this blog, went out and got a mailbox, and here we are.

Q: How often do you check the mailbox?
A: Every day. It's kind of pathetic, really. I'm just so excited at the thought of the first postcard coming in.

Q: Do you return postcards?
A: I don't, so please be sure you're not sending me anything irreplaceable.
