Today, let’s immerse ourselves in the exquisite details of a hand-painted letter from 1899. Take a moment to appreciate the meticulous paintings and the graceful penmanship of its creator. The nostalgia sets in as I yearn for the days of letters, postcards, and the unhurried charm of cursive handwriting.
There’s an undeniable beauty in the love and care put into crafting each word, a sentiment that resonates deeply in these preserved pieces of history.
Recently, a wave of melancholy washed over me as my personal Facebook page, established in 2007, and the TresBohemes Facebook page, along with the Everything Czech Facebook group (nurtured to an audience of almost 35,000), were obliterated due to a hacking incident. Over 10,000 posts, 25,000 images, and countless hours of dedication vanished instantly.
To ensure the preservation of our cherished community, I’ve transitioned to Patreon. This platform offers a secure space where our journey into Czech heritage can thrive without the risk of sudden disappearance. Some of you have already extended your kindness through emails and letters, for which I am grateful.
The shift to Patreon allows us to connect and engage without the constraints of external decisions and without the risk of all my work and our conversations disappearing. That is now very important to me, as it should be to you.
As the day unfolds in a somewhat overcast and gloomy ambiance, I leave you with these captivating images, hoping our connection on Patreon will blossom into a vibrant haven for our shared appreciation of Czech culture and the art of heartfelt communication through letters.
