I'm living in a small village nearby Hannover in Germany. I'm the only one office employee at an old farm, a manor (= "Rittergut"; difficult to translate). Old lances, swords, knight's armours and stern resp. strictly looking portraits are watching about me ... Outside (im Calenberger Land), we manage modern arable farming. I'm the accountant and the do-all for anyone. It's an interesting and a varied job.
My husband is a kind of farmer too. He works for an assurance and checks damages of hail. And he is a specialist for vegetables and an expert for cultivation of peas. Don't laugh! It's important that the peas you've bought, now on your saucepan or your plate, are perfect. Arable farming, peas and wood are our themes, but I am interested in many things:
I love reading books, I like knitting socks meanwhile listening audio books or music. I love Mozart's Music and other classical music, esp. Russian Composers, - also Queen, Simon and Garfunkel, The Beatles and David Orlowsky Trio (Klezmer) and film music.
I like listening radio and sometimes seeing films, esp. documentary films about history, also film adaptions of literature or thrillers with a surprising end or movies which are a little bizarre.
Otherwise, I love architecture, paintings and lithographs, surprising cartoons and dark humour.
I love the blackbird's song when it rains gently. I love the simple daily life: a roof over our heads, a table and some chairs, a bed, a stove, a cellar or a fridge with something to eat and do drink in them, friendly neighbours, happy children, hospitality, helpfulness, guests and good discussions - and a warm light in the window. If you see a soft muffled yellow lamp in our window: we are at home, come in.
So, send something what you yourself enjoy receiving. Maybe, you tell something about you. I'll be happy about your postcard and your informations! If you have no idea: Send me a photo-card of cemeteries or burial culture, paintings of ancient art, sculptures of modern art, libraries, ballet, dance, music instruments, close-up pictures, postallove/greetings from, peas, wood, cold-blooded/heavy horses (logging horses, "Gäule", no leisure horses), kitchen equipment or interior, restrooms, Chronikkarten, botanical drawings, roofs, black and white, historical film or advertising posters, nasty cartoons, unusual, bad, politically incorrect (but not extreme; I am settled liberally).
Excuse me please: NO monkeys.
Many greetings! Martina
I try to pick out YOUR card. But sometimes it does not succeed. Please excuse me.
Expired postcards: Too many. Most to Eintagsfliegen, nine days wonders.
I register your card the same day when it arrives. I don't let you stew so that you have chance to send your next card.
