About Ira...

Hello, dear postcrossers!

I like this project as it unites different people under its umbrella. I am a Moscow teacher of English. I enjoy literature and sport.
Also I fool around with poetry. Here is one of my creations:
A series of words,
Like raindrops with no meaning,
We utter them in turns
To shade the light of feeling.

Left flowers
On the bus stop
And nobody in sight
Are a story stay untold,
Hidden outside.

My favourite author is Ivan Bunin. In "Chang's Dreams", for example, he uncovers the inner life of the dog.
Also I'm really into Depeche Mode. And what inspires you?
