About Teresa...

My name is Teresa and I am 32 years old.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Some dearest friends are going to have a daughter called Alice. If you can send me an Alice postcard for their daughter it would be so great, as I'm going to offer them those postcards. I have already done something similar to their marriage before :)

Before reading about my favorite themes, please, I'd love if you could write something important for you on your postcard. A personal story, a dream, a reflection; anything you would like to tell. Sending postcards is also a way of sharing, I believe, and a way of keeping our hope / faith in humanity.

I love Children Book illustations postcards, so I would love to get some postcards with beautiful drawings/illustrations. But I love everything related with literature/books/bookish stuff/libraries/bookshops. Some of my favourite authors are Elena Ferrante, Haruki Murakami, Neil Gaiman, Milan Kundera, Virginia Woolf, Stefan Zweig, Patti Smith, José Luís Peixoto, José Saramago and many others. It would be great if you'd recommend me a book.

Another favorite theme is Hayao Miyazaki's movies.

I love Art in general; reading, writing, painting, taking photos. I like photographs a lot and I have an online gallery. I love listening to music and my favorite band is Sigur Rós. I do love photographs, especially taken with analog or old cameras. I have a blog where I write about art themes, especially literature: https://www.pickashelf.com. I have also an Instagram account with the same name (@pickashelf).

Other things I enjoy: cats, E. H. Shepard illustrations ("Winnie-the-Pooh" and "The Wind in the Willows"), books, etc. Some movies/TV series I like: Dark (Netflix series), American Beauty, Parasite, Big Fish, La La Land, Harry Potter, Blade Runner, Scrubs, Gilmore Girls, movies directed by Terrence Malick, etc.

Another theme I'd like to read about is health/medicine. As a primary care doctor, I am deeply interested in the doctor–patient relationship, and I truly believe Postcrossing may help to improve empathy amongst healthcare professionals. So I'd be very glad if you share with me some of your experiences with your doctor / nurse / healthcare professional or something related to your health / struggles / victories / battles.

I like all kind of postcards, but I would love to receive stamped ones, without an envelope :)

Happy postcrossing!
