Anyone who has been reading this blog for awhile knows about my love for postcards. I can't explain it, I'm just fascinated with them. I love travel and the limited space of a postcard requires you to distill the experience into just a few words. Well, maybe more if you write really tiny.
Many of you have received postcards as part of one of my postcard projects. After reading the book Road to Quoz by William Least Heat-Moon I was inspired to create my own postcards. These cards are reports on my attempts to find Quoz and report them to Heat-Moon and his wife Q.
What is Quoz? Here's the definition:
Quoz (kwoz) Noun, both singular and plural. Anything strange, incongruous, or peculiar. The unknown, the mysterious.
The Quoz postcards are a fun and creative effort, sporadically posted as I stumble upon Quoz. I've set up a separate blog entitled Postcards from Quoz. The title is inaccurate because Quoz is not a place, but I was hard pressed to come up with anything that rolled off the tongue.
The postcards are real and stored in my sewing room. Try as I may, I haven't been able to search out an address for Heat-Moon or his literary agent. I suppose I could send them c/o General Delivery but I wonder if they would be delivered.
Here's the link to Letters from Quoz. Remember, it will only be update when I find Quoz.

NOTE: Be sure to come back tomorrow. I am working on a very cool project to share with you.
