Dear Mim, you are one of the Group's most loyal supporters and contributors and are definitely NOT amongst the non-active members.

I really appreciate your efforts -- keep going! Bestest, Val

Comment by Mim Golub Scalin yesterday

Hello Val, 

I've sent you most of my boring postcards, but

am checking all my piles of cards and will

be contributing again, soon.

Comment by Valentine Mark Herman on Friday

Thanks Raphael. I am curious how come you still have postcards going back 45 years? Val

Comment by Raphael Nadolny on Friday

Just one more postcard for kids, about 1977.

Comment by Valentine Mark Herman on Friday

THERE'S NOT MUCH HAPPENING IN THIS STREET OR ON THIS POSTCARD, OF;;;

Bastion St, Mdina ("the Silent City", Malta

"Silent", because it used to be the capital of Malta, but when the capital was moved to Valetta*, Mdina became a 'virtual ghost town'

(* Valetta is not named after your correspondent Val)

Comment by Heleen de Vaan on Friday

Those are far from boring, they are interesting! Your first steps in asemic writing, and even a postmark is added!

Thank you for sharing

Comment by Raphael Nadolny on Wednesday

In the communist era, there were also postcards dedicated for children
in Poland.

What I was trying to draw on the other side

was probably the beginning
of the mail art.

But these two copies were never sent by post

because I was trying to address them to myself.

Postcards form 1977 year.

Rydzyna, near Leszno in Poland, bar at "Kowolka" located in an old forge from the 17th century.

2. The Slope of Lok Ma Chau

Lok Ma Chau is a small piece of riverside land transferred to Hong Kong by Mainland China in 2017.

3.Salle Louis VX, Musée des Arts Décoratif, Paris, France

I wonder if you walked through Louis' Salles 1 to 14 before you arrived at this one?
