I was honoured to receive many messages to my inbox about people’s loved ones – messages that remind us that grief does not need to be shouldered alone and how we can seek comfort in shared stories/experiences.
I was plotting a trip to New York and invited people to get involved by sending a handwritten postcard for me to deliver in the city. I packed the notes in my suitcase and scattered them Stateside, with the aim of connecting writers with finders, if any were found.
I enlisted the help of a few people in New York – friends I’d made along the way, plus a couple of others, including Meghan Markle, quite randomly. I’d contacted her lifestyle site, The Tig, about the project and she offered to come and help in-person. Bit hard to get hold of these days. Ha. And now I slightly regret how hungover I was when I met her. Life.
It was an honour to do this project on behalf of others. Pretty terrifying, too. Those postcards felt like treasure and I really wanted each and every one to be found. Some were spotted and new connections and stories were made. Take a look at some of the old blog posts below.

This blog began as a way to document my personal tribute to my mum. To celebrate what would have been her 60th birthday, I scattered 60 handwritten postcards around Paris in her memory and I wrote my email address on them in case anyone was to find one. (You can read more in my Glamour article here.) Since then,Continue reading “A Heartfelt Note for Rose on the Brooklyn Bridge”
