Hello - My name is Ali, but many people address me as Lisa...a rather long story..call me what you like :) My interests are many and varied. I love reading, cats, collecting stamps and coins, and unusual books. I enjoy learning about other people's cultures and traditions. I enjoy photos of every kind but really like funny or arty cards, cards with cats and other animals, scenic cards, old buildings and architecture. I would love to travel but do not have the means, so I hope to travel to as many places I can through Postcrossing.com. I don't mind receiving home made cards but prefer those which are not unless they are unusual, decoupaged or a photo or drawing you've down yourself (or printed yourself).
I thus far have not learned much about other people's societies, they traditions and/or holidays. I did hear from one person about water gods which I found quite intriguing. I love all music except rap or extremely heavy metal music. I own four cats, two are diabetic and one had a heart attack before he was one (birth defect). My 26 year old daughter and I love to take day trips to take photographs and love wild life. I am particularly fond of waterfalls and the ocean. Some of my favorite singers are Micheal Grimm, Elvis (can you believe that?) Eva Cassidy, lots of what we call Oldies, (wow, this could get long)..I love movies. Some of my favorite movies are A Beautiful Mind, KPax, Much Ado about Nothing, The Usual Suspects...Currently I am watching DVD's of THe Mentalist; Desperate House Wives, House; Psyche and Dexter. I can't begin to tell you about my favorite books. Our home is like a library...Books, books, books, books, books!!! Carry one where ever I go!
Oh, I work in the field of Mental Health. ( It is very challenging). I would like to get to know folks from all over the globe and hope that you will want to get to know me. I'm a pretty interesting lady. I look forward to hearing from you all!!!
*by the way, I love quotes - doesn't matter what kind...anecdotes, jokes, no religious ones please.
Happy Posting! Ali aka Lisa
