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.

How do I handle this?

Gentle Readers, I have a problem. Today I received a lovely postcard from a lovely person. However, the postcard comes from, and depicts, a place that actually exists in reality. I've received more than one of these postcards, and I'm not sure what I should do with them.

Is there a better way to explain, as I've tried to do in the blog header, that this mail art project is about sending postcards from places you'd love to visit if only they really existed? If you have a good idea about how to make this concept more plain, I'd love to hear about it.


  1. This is a fun idea. Maybe having an example postcard might be helpful for those who don't realize you're looking for imaginary locations, like from the dunes of Tatooine, or from a beach in Narnia.

  2. Post an example? Make a blog header with a map of Oz?
