The Road To & From Rio


I can't help drawing silly cartoons about the Olympics. They're cropping up all over. On sticky notes, backs of envelopes, magazine margins, inside Moleskins, journals, stationery, envelopes, postcards . . .  And my strongest Olympics is that somewhere in Rio someone is thinking of me, and they're addressing a postcard with a written message just for me. I dream of at least one postcard from Rio. 

I wonder if there are mail boxes just for the athletes? Do you think they'll be too busy  to send a postcard home even after their events? Or will they be too excited to think of something so mundane? I wonder what would happen if I sent a postcard to a favorite athlete. Do you think they'd get it? Well, dang! "Well, let me see," said the blind man. I'm sending a postcard to Rio!

Happy mail to you, until I write again.

  2. :) The excitement over the Olympics is heating up, and I'm sure many athletes are dreaming of gold. With email and texting, I wonder how many letters actually do go to and from Olympics these days.
