Thank you Coco for this evocative postcard. It's unlike the ink I'm familiar with. It feels as if it's sitting on top of the paper rather than part of it and it feels almost crispy. Curious and curiouser.See More

Thanks to Patricio for the most novel experience of my day. He sent a note to me in my handwriting collaged from my note to him! This bundle has a holiday/travel/take a break theme to it which could be a welcome nudge!

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you,but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on ( josephmclaughlin500@gmail.com ) for the full details.Have a nice day
Thanks God bless.
