Unless you’ve built a tiny house, you may not realize that it can often be a very lonely and discouraging process. Sure, it’s fun and exciting, but there are many things that are challenging and frustrating about the build process as well. Yet it seems that for every challenge, there is something positive that keeps you going through the build. For the last two weeks I’ve been struggling with this nasty flu – for a whole week I hardly left the house, and then the second week of it, I only made it into my work twice. Yet those two days that I did make it in to work last week, I was pleasantly surprised to find postcards waiting for me from an organization called the Postcard Underground.
A google search revealed several organizations who had also been recipients of their postcards. Through this search I found out that the Postcard Underground sends anonymous postcards with encouraging messages to individuals and organizations who they believe are doing inspiring work. Even though I don’t know who is behind this effort, I feel so fortunate to have been the recipient of a few of their postcards. They came at a time when I really needed some encouragement, and they made me remember the joy it is to receive snail mail in this age of emails and texts. The fact that the postal stamps are from Minnesota, my home, makes me even more appreciative of their effort. Thank you, Postcard Undergound, for your support of Boneyard Studios and the whole tiny house community!
