From her new home in Central Australia, on the eve of 2008, Beth Sometimes set herself achallenge: to write a postcard to somebody, everybody, anybody and anything every day for thenext year. Collected here are postcards to friends, exes, people she'd met in passing, strangers, rivers,mountains and just about anything she wanted to reach out and touch. Most she designed andillustrated herself, and each contains a piece of writing of some significance; moments in time andpersonal reflections that create their own poetic narrative. From Sometimes Love Beth also includes tear-out postcards, plus 20 challenges and tips to inspirereaders to set off on their own postal adventures. More than a compendium of postcards, the bookexplores the themes of isolation and connection. It weaves a world of rectangular emotions andcardboarderly camaraderie, where giant ideas roam miniature communiqu?s and the personalbecomes public - just like on a postcard itself.
