About Teresa...

My name is Teresa and I am 30 years old.

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. 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

Other things I enjoy: cats, The Little Prince, E. H. Shepard illustrations ("Winnie-the-Pooh" and "The Wind in the Willows"), Astronomy/the Universe, books, etc. If you have some postcards related to anime culture, I'd love to receive some too. I do love all GHIBLI movies! (If you have one postcard from these anime movies, I'd love to receive one) Other animes I love: Natsume Yuujinchou, Sailor Moon, Rurouni Kenshin, Hachimitsu to Clover, etc, etc. Some movies/TV series I like: American Beauty, Big Fish, La La Land, Harry Potter, Blade Runner, Scrubs, Friends, Gilmore Girls, Hilda. I'd love to get some from La La Land!

I also love literature. Some of my favourite authors are Haruki Murakami, Neil Gaiman, Milan Kundera, Virginia Woolf, Elena Ferrante, Stefan Zweig, José Luís Peixoto, José Saramago and many others.

I also admire: Carl Sagan, Oliver Sacks, Patti Smith, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Maria Popova.

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!
