Those who believe in cosmic jokes might find an amusing coincidence in this postcard that I received today, over 3 months after it was posted – by the looks of it, it wasn’t a pleasant journey. It shows a scene from Hayao Miyazaki’s classic anime feature film Kiki’s Delivery Service, with the title character delivering a gift from her broomstick with her cat Jiji perched alongside. If only she’d been responsible for getting this postcard to me it might have made it in a better state than it has!
