My name is Kirsji and I am a Canadian expat from Québec living in the suburbs of Phoenix Arizona for the past 20 years. I live here with my 2 sons and I have 3 other children who live with their father in a different part of the country.
I love cycling, hiking in the desert and canyons around my home, rock climbing, scrambling, adventuring and geocaching. Reading and learning are both passions of mine.
Cards in my faves are cards I do not yet have, but would be very pleased to receive ... http://www.postcrossing.com/user/Kirsji/gallery/favourites
►► I would love to receive a Postcrossing stamp from your country if one is available! I am hoping the USA comes up with one soon! ◄◄
I love all types of postcards, but I especially love:
♥ Cards depicting your national holidays or traditions
♥ Map cards or flags
♥ Special places or famous people in your country. Please, could you tell me what I'm looking at if it's not described on the back. I like researching the buildings, places and people I see on postcards
♥ Anything to do with mathematics and/or science (biology and chemistry, especially!), my fields of study long ago. I also love astronomy
♥ Cards with quotes
♥ Sad, sombre or wistful cards
♥ But then, very colourful cards always make me happy and brighten my day!
♥ Bizarre or twisted is good too :)
♥ Book-related cards ... authors, illustrators, libraries in your area, children's book covers
My favourite authors are John Milton, Oscar Wilde, Jonathan Swift, Edgar Allan Poe, Franz Kafka, Augusten Burroughs and Stephen King
♥ My absolute favourite books are Miltonian epics ♥
♥ Alice in Wonderland
♥ The Wizard of Oz
♥ Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn
♥ Art cards of ALL types, but my favourite artists include J.B. Monge, Inge Löök, Anton Pieck, Carl Larsson, Norman Rockwell, Lisi Martin, Donald Zolan, Harry Clarke, Leonid Afremov, Caspar David Friedrich, Susan Wheeler, Aimee Stewart, Katya Dudnik
♥ Inkognito cards
♥ Funny cards ... I love all types of humour; silly, strange, even wildly inappropriate (if it's a card you wouldn't dare show your grandmother, you can bet I'll love it!!)
♪ ♫ ♪ ♫ If you should find a postcard of The Dubliners (my avatar pic), especially Luke Kelly, I'd be very happy to receive it and I'll send you a card or two to thank you! ♫ ♪ ♫ ♪
♥ Some of my favourite tv programmes include Monty Python, Fawlty Towers, Black Books, The Twilight Zone ... USA members, I ♥adore♥ Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart, if you should have a card of them!
♥ Ships, sailboats
I am an avid reader and I have a very large collection of books. I would love it if you have a book to recommend me, whether fiction or non-fiction, funny or bizarre, anything, really. I'm always looking for new books, new authors, and new subjects to read! Open my mind to something new! :)
Have a wonderful day, and thank you for making my mailbox a happy one to visit!
Peace and hugs,
~♥~ Kirsji ~♥~
