I came across a collection of old Toronto postcards. They made me think of the lost art of cursive writing, and how slowly it would have taken to send and receive small bits of information among friends and loved ones. Even the pens of the day were different. They were dipped in ink wells and had special calligraphy nibs on them. It was not so long ago in human history; and yet, decades before the digital age. This one was sent in 1909 from Toronto to Fonthill, Ontario. With the magic of digital art, I have superimposed the image of an orchid onto the image of the card. Both orchids and hand written post cards have been known to bring joy to the receiver. We give them with great love and affection yet they are doomed to fade away in time.
