First something about how I see postcrossing:
Receiving a postcard is receiving a gift. I try to fullfill wishes, and as soon as I'm paid for it, you are allowed to order me how to send this precious gift....All my cards I send come from my heart. Please accept my postcard as I send it!
PLEASE PLEASE ALWAYS WRITE YOUR POSTCROSSNAME FIRST,
so I can ask you when something is wrong in the ID.
I'm a retired teacher and I live in Ter Aar, a little village close to Amsterdam and Schiphol in the Netherlands. I live in an appartement, so I don't have a yard or garden.
I like to tell short stories, I am a storyteller. The most I like short stories about wisdom and peace. I am a collector of everything made by Marten Toonder, a Dutch writer and artist. I am sure you can find a lot of Marten Toonder on the Internet.
I'm also a volunteer ground crew member for a hot air balloon team. Together with a friend we pick up the balloon at the company, prepare it for sailing (not flying), and navigate to the place where it will land. There we pack the balloon again and bring the passengers to the spot where we started, and then the balloon must be brought back to the company. I love to do this.
I welcome any and all postcards (only not adv.), most the Keep Calm postcards, and in November and December Christmascards. Please surprise me....Write me please something about you and your country or where you live, and not only: happy Postcrossing. The Postcross-idea is getting to know more about others, and only "Happy Postcrossing" does not tell something ....
A special request: If possible in the postcard can you answer one question: What makes you really happy?
If I didn't register your postcard, please send a second one. I never register without receiving....
