My name is Diane and I live in northern/central New York - not far from the magnificent Adirondack mountains. I've been married for 35 years; we have a 27 yr old daughter (married), a 31 yr old son (married), a dog named Boomer (he's an apricot colored Labradoodle) and a ginger cat named Finn (Finnegan).
I'm an avid reader of many different genres. I am retired from many years working at a local library and after that many years as a Bookseller with Barnes and Noble. I love writing letters; writing in my journal; working in my garden; caring for my houseplants; doing a variety of projects for fun and some on our house; doing research and editing for others; taking Boomer for walks, being with my family and friends, learning new things - I am always curious about so many things.
I love sending and receiving postcards from all over the world!! It's wonderful to open the mailbox and finding a hand written note instead of just junk mail and bills. With technology controlling so much of the way people communicate, it's sad to see handwritten letters/cards becoming less and less a part of our lives.
When I discovered Postcrossing I was so excited! It's a wonderful program - a great way to see the world when we can't travel to every spot - a way to reinforce within ourselves that though we may have different traditions, climates, celebrations - we are, within our hearts and souls - so very much alike.
Any postcard I receive will be wonderful - I have no preference and am grateful for whatever you choose. Tell me whatever you would like to share..... something about yourself, where you live, a favorite book, a favorite quote.....a dream or hope you have... what you believe in.... whatever you are comfortable sharing. Please put the date and most important of all - your name.
Thank you for taking the time to send me a postcard! I wish you joy in each day!
