I heart this postcard /art work from Switzerland based artist Kristi Moore (on red background). You can find out more about Kristi at: www.asphaltandair.com. © Kristi Moore

I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who wrote to me about receiving their postcards and to those who sent me one.
The postcard swap was definitely worth doing. It introduced me to new blogs and artists and perhaps the best part was the simple pleasure of receiving something other than spam or bills in the mail.

Took a little break from blogging. Tim Hetherington & Chris Hondra's deaths made me very pensive. I have been thinking more about their lives than their deaths. And I have been thinking about the civilians in Libya, Sri Lanka and other places around the world.
Then I came down with a nasty cold, I guess sometimes the body follows the mind.

On a cheerier note we had some fun house guests over the past week. Among them my godson who is just marvelous. He and his parents showed up after literally traveling half way around the world, with tons of luggage and a surfboard in tow and he was still sweet and charming and not a bit cranky, which I find very impressive at the age of 10 months.
