Life’s Experiments: Send Me Your Postcard

Have you…

  • tried skydiving?
  • dined at a restaurant by yourself?
  • run with the bulls?

How have you busted out of your comfort zone? Share your story of success or failure (or anything in between) by creating a postcard and sending it to me. Include whatever you want on your postcard: a photo, a drawing, a collage, a description….

Feel free to include your name and a link to your blog or website (if you have one), or keep it anonymous. It’s up to you.

Mailing Directions
