A month later, a second card arrived.
According to the copyright line on the back, this card came from the same place as the first one: Everything is Connected: Reimagining the World One Postcard at a Time.
The book’s description reads as follows:
From the internationally bestselling creator of Wreck This Journal comes an imaginative new project: fifty postcards that send you on a quest to reanimate everyday life…
Leave notes in public for strangers, dream up a tiny imaginary world, summon magic powers, draw a portrait of yourself as a hero, create your own treasure map, or access a secret portal whenever you wish.
So it would seem, then, that someone had sent Ryan these cards as part of a fun project, that it wasn’t something creepy. Knowing this, he told me they’d probably come from Lauren–she was fun and creative, and this was just the sort of thing she and her young son Hank would do.
