I just fell in love with this postcard when I received this. But lo and behold! That postmark right on the body of the polar bear. I wanted to stage a protest against the central post office for ruining (kind of) my postcard! But I reckon I calmed myself by thinking that such marks on the postcard gives it character -- the postmark is the evidence that the card traveled far and long, but finally, it has reached the end of its journey.
Looking longer at the card, I ask myself what the polar bear is thinking about, with the setting sun and the chunk of sea ice at a distance. Global warming, perhaps?
I am sharing this card with Beverly's Pink Saturday blog roll. Happy weekend everyone!
