Great sites to enjoy

I love postcards and I love letters. To me, the written word is much more personal and intimate. Writing from the heart is an art. It's a shame that more people don't make themselves vulnerable and put their thoughts and feelings onto paper to communicate. Writing letters and sending post cards is a way to leave an imprint in this world. It's creating history and a treasure for someone in the far future to discover and read. What a remarkable find, to be able to read about something so close to one's heart, to read about how a person lived or how much things cost. I want to leave my imprint. I want people to know that my life was/is good enough to write about.

I heard today that vulnerability is courageous. To write from the heart, one must tap into his/her vulnerability to make it real. That's what a life of happiness is all about.

Go visit Richard at Moody's postcards to see more lovely postcards.


  1. Thank you so much for your sweet comment! I am DEFINITELY on my way over to Moody's postcards - I loveeee old fashioned cards!! It truly is so special to receive a hand written note in the mail.

  2. I so agree! I have the letters a Civil War ancestor wrote to his mother during the war. Thank God his mother and descendants saved them. They add so much to getting a glimpse of who he was.

    PS Any moon shots? It's not too late!

  3. Well said. I love old postcards, too. I especially love them for their innocence and their portrayal of a simpler time.

  4. thanks for commenting. I probably wont be writing about the movie in my other journal cuz noone ever comments, im thinking about deleting it. I might write about it in my regular blog tho.

  5. Hey there :)

    I was going to comment on your last post, but apparently changing your background messed up the ability to comment. I couldn't post a comment. So....here I am, hoping that you get this. Did you look through any of my backgrounds...Free Backgrounds from Simply Heather ? Go to my profile page and you can get the link to that blog.

    There are instructions for putting the backgrounds on your page...it really is pretty easy and won't mess up your commenting :)

    If you need any help, just let me know - I'll be glad to AND....if you have a photo that you like, would like as a background...I can set one up for you. I would just have to copy your photo in order to make it as your background, and then I can make the code for you. Just let me know, okay?

    Love, Heather

  6. Couldn't find an email address for you, so figured I would ask here. Love the ghost story you posted. May we use it on the blog and in the book?

    Many thanks,

  7. Well, I usually visit the other blog, but must post here to let you know that your change in format and style has resulted in me being unable to post a comment. I do not know if others are affected as well.
