About Dorothea...

;-) Hallo everybody!

I think, time is the most valuable gift you can give someone.

18.02.2023 - In the next 2 month I will life more in his flat than in mine, we'll prove to life close together insted of commuting, in a second residence...fingers crossed! ;-)

- Even having (7 years now) a new (long distance) relationship in our age (64/66) is not as easy as I thought it would be. So many expectations. Can wisdom of the aged or experiance help to be more satisfied?

-I was an interested bookseller allways, last experiences in my "late" working years are not so good. Now I start again in a Midi job...hoping for the best in the last working years.

-Legend has it that Ernest Hemingway was once challenged to write a story in six words.He came back swinging with:
"For sale, baby shoes, never worn."
Some say he called it his best work. Other dismiss the anecdote as a litterary folktale. Either way, the six-word story was born, and it's popping arround the writing world for years.

If I had to tell my life in 6 words ( like in the Smith Magazine) my words would be these:
"Protected,beloved, thrown into life, survived."
Do you write me 6 words to describe your life?

-If you like to answer the question please:
What book have you heared about but not yet read and why?

My card wish list
...but you know ;-)
...each card can be a surprise!

--- persons, who are reading (Lesende!)
Send me cards with readers, painted, photographed, simply in all positions.
---Expo, World Fairs
My second huge postcard-interest is "World-fairs/ Expositions". Very fascinating. Please send me any kind of motive (for example from the cities of World Fairs) or everything that has to do with World Fairs or has the merest hint of that event. Was in Milan 2015 (Feeding the World) and in Kazakhstan 2017 (Astana). I unfortunately have to skip Dubai, but in Osaka Japan I'll be a proud participant again.
---yellow "everything" -
My idea is to create a card wall like wallpaper with "Yellow" from yellow (with a little little touch of blue, or other color ) to yellow yellow( without or as less other color as possible)...so no other colours mixed in or even as little as possible.
---In 2023: year of the rabbit cards. I am curious and interested in astrologie.
---birch trees (a lot in a row. Lovely!)
---art/ especially Mondrian
---all cards that use "Scrabble" letters

PS:Some cards later, I realised, that I wouldn't have fun with animals so:
NO ANIMALS please.

I prefer an interesting POSTCARD more than beautiful stamps. You can even use meter stamps.

Stay safe your Dorothea
