Thanks to postcrossing again, I got FR-662417, a postcard from France. I love this photograph so much. The trees and the river seem so pure and untouched, and it make wonder about travelling there. France has a lovely nature. I’ve seen it for so long. Especially the fields with lavender in south France… So amazing!
Amandine, I wanted to study pedagogy. Something about the kids always thrilled me. I have spent hours and hours reading about it, and trying to figure out their psychology and how the brain works, not only for the kids, but for adults too. Freud has been my friend for so long. He’s my favorite, I must say. There is something about people that entertains me so much. How their brain works? Why do they think what they think and many other questions that I still can’t understand. It just thrills me.
Too bad that my karate life didn’t bring me to The Netherlands. I’ve heard a lot of beautiful stories for that country. Today I received a postcrossing card from Bianca NL-3336806 from Tilburg, The Netherlands.
The statue is Koning Willem II (Kind William the second), and he lived in Bianca’s town. His palace is now townhall.
Bianca, thank you for the amazing card. Thank you for the three amazing stamps too. I adore them!
Second of this type of postcards that I get. The first from Penguin,and this one from Pelican books. Haven’t read “The common reader” by Virginia Woolf, so I can’t tell much about it. I have seen the goodreads review, and it seems like an interesting plot.
Have you read it? I want you to tell me everything about it 🙂 I’d love to hear your comments 😀
Also, not to forget, the special thanks to a postcrossing user from Hong Kong. It is my first card from Hong Kong, and I will remember HK-396282. Vicki, thank you for the card! I am a book lover too, and I love this postcard so, so much!
Even though I spent a lot of time in France, I spent them mostly on the French Riviera, where Cannes, Monaco, Nice, Mougines, Valbonne and Antibes are settled.
I didn’t have an opportunity to visit places like Lille, that hold a rich variety of culture and different monuments that are a must for every tourist. The special thing about Lille is that it became french with the King Louis XIV in 1667.
I hope one day, I’ll have a chance to visit it, and until then, I’ll just admire this FR-657853 postcard from the DuDu Family .
Do you have fear from big cities? I kinda do. I live in a capital, and it’s so crowded that it sometimes scares me. I guess I just want to visit those big cities, but not live in them.
However, that doesn’t take away their beauty. They all have something very special in them. Same with New York. I’d love to go there and see everything it has to offer.
Thanks to /u/MyBFFRose, I had a chance to see New York for a second on this lovely pictures craved in the letters of the city. I wish I could see it at night, with all the lights on, and I wish I could see it by day, with all the traffic it has 😀
Annemarie sent me this postcard of a fairy, I think, and that fairy is fixing her wing. This is one of the many reasons why I love postcrossing (NL-3358563).
There was one little girl that dreamed with her eyes open. She believed everything is possible, and therefore, she was always happy. People would stare at her and just wonder how it is possible for someone to be always happy and never to have a sad face. It was because she was a dreamer. She believed in happiness. She made happiness. She made herself wings and believed she could fly. And yes, she did fly, and people would wonder again how she did it. But she was already up above, enjoying the view while she flew.
One day, it all changed. There was this terrible storm and this strong wind, and one of her wings broke. She fell down and she couldn’t fly. It hurt her so much. Not the wing, but the fact that she couldn’t be up again, flying, among the birds, among the planes, among the clouds and the blue sky. She cried a lot, and her happiness was not here anymore.
She saw the sun the next day. And she wanted to be close to the sun so much. People expected her to be unhappy again, but no, there she was, fixing her broken wing, singing songs and smiling, laughing even. She was happy again, and she believed. She did believe she could fly again, and this time nothing could stop her, nor people, nor storms.
I saw her a while ago. She was flying and waved at me. I smiled, because I knew she was happy. I always knew she always be happy. Because she’s a dreamer. And she never gives up.
This is my first card from Singapore from postcrossing (SG-202555)
Thank you Kai, for reminding me of my childhood. I really don’t know why everything reminds me of my childhood! The same thing happened with this postcard. It is basically little tiles with words and pictures inside, and I remembered how I learnt the basic words and letters when I was very small. Ah, if only I could be a child again hehe 😀
I need to say a huge thanks for this St Patrick’s day card! It is the first one I’ve ever gotten. It seems I’m lucky. ( such a bad St Patrick’s day joke, right? 😀 )
I love St Patrick’s day, even though we don’t celebrate it here in Macedonia. I’ve always wanted to dress all in green and celebrate with parades in big cities like Chicago or Boston, to shout and be happy and to try the green beer too!
When I think about it, isn’t it sad, how we are supposed to be happy only for St Patrick’s day? Why aren’t we happy every day instead? And fool around wearing green, or blue, or whatever we feel like wearing… Why don’t we just make our days to be holidays every day, eh? And be happy all the time.
I remember I’ve read this somewhere: “Let’s eat cake every day. It’s somebody’s birthday somewhere! ”
I received something very unusual. It was a brown envelope and when I opened it a brochure came out of it and The Great Crane Postcard. I honestly don’t remember how I applied for this, or how it came to me, but I am so glad it did!
The 5 x 7 inch origami crane is a 3-color silkscreen print signed, numbered, and printed by hand at Neat & Keen Studios by John Everett Morton in DeKalb, IL. While 1000 is quite a bit for a limited edition print, it relates to the Japanese tradition of folding 1000 origami cranes in return for good luck or one wish granted.
