WELCOME to my Postcrossing profile page!
It is amazing that someone far away, will combine time, effort, expense and good friendly heart to send me a postcard. That's why Postcrossing idea is so wonderful. It isn't about founding some mail in a mailbox. It is about connecting with unexpected friend who will seriously want to learn about me, my interests, and my life and vice versa.
My avatar is misleading. I am alive, I do not smoke, however, I have been ill for years because of difficult to treat, severe asthma. Looking blue, I have had moments close to departing to the other world. Talking about skeletons you must see the fantastic movie COCO and then, you will understand the culture around me better.
I am a being, sort of advanced in years, but young in spirit, humor and actions. That's why I identify myself with Inge Löök old ladies who are my friends and I love them. My name is Elżbieta, I was born, raised and educated in Poland, Cracow. Now I live in the USA in the state of New Mexico called the LAND OF ENCHANTMENT for it's unique nature and culture. My city ALBUQUERQUE is located on the famous ROUTE 66 and is a home for a popular movie BREAKING BAD. I am married, with a great husband, two grown up children, two grandchildren and very loved Chihuahua dog, Tito. Half of my life I worked as a scientist. Later on I became an artist (mixed media and photography).
I love traveling, gardening, nature, good design, art, beautiful interiors and architecture, I read tons of books and like to learn languages. I admire and value knowledge, skills, cultured behavior, frugal attitude and kindness. I recycle and kill plastic at every opportunity.
I detest and protest against war, cruelty, violence, dark ugliness, ignorance, fanaticism racism, cruelty and greedy politics. I want peace on Earth. I want future for my grandchildren and all beings.
If you wonder what kind of card to send me, here are some ideas. You might have some of them and I will be very happy to find them in my mailbox :

I am especially curious about thousands of artists in your country we don't have an opportunity to learn about. I love posters, illustration, graphics, folk and indigenous art.

I adore Inge Löök old ladies, blue cat, gnomes and Pettson and Findus by Swen Nordgrist.
