It's been quite some time since I finished reading 'Letters to Milena'. I could relate to this book on so many levels - missed opportunity, sorrow, misunderstanding, second guessing... One can only imagine how would such communication work these days, with internet on your fingertips. But, love is such a mysterious thing. Where do you draw the line, how do you distinguish between desire and dedication, yet none of this fits all... ?
One of my earlier discoveries of 2012 included a random collection of few postcards. When I studied them closer, I realised that they were part of correspondence between a man and a girl, and the messages were encrypted. The recipient's address is interesting too - Miss Radka Muchlova, post office assistant, Post Office, Prague 3 - nothing more, nothing less. Furthermore, the postcards were posted in 1922!
When I got back to the local antique shop the next day, I didn't find a single postcard related to this collection. So here are three of them, a silent reminder of my failure. Apologies for clumsy translation, those words don't make much sense in Czech either.
I keep that picture with me. I welcome it every day. Yours M. PS Package has been sent.
Thank you for 'bird on the look-out', singing sweetly? Today has been a miserable day, just like autumn. It's even cold. Many greetings, M.
I received your both postcards today (''At comrade who is ill'' and ''Body of executors'') Thanks for that. In the last few days, it's overcast, like in autumn. Sending greetings, Yours M.
