About Eric...

Every time I send a card or receive a card I will plant one tree through so know that your postcard helped save the planet! [I got this idea from Tearlach, another postcrosser. Thanks for a great way to offset the carbon costs of our hobby!]

I am a retired sailor, with interests in reading, film, lego, chess, railroads, geology, birdwatching, photography, poetry and dogs. I prefer stamped postcards with a written message, not cards in envelopes.

It is a thrill to receive any personal correspondence, and I will gladly welcome any postcard you send, that being said, I am particularly interested in the following (these are in no particular order):

- Postcrossing Meetup cards
- Alternate media: lenticular cards, copper cards, wooden cards, leather cards, cork cards
- Scenic views, especially rugged coasts, shorelines, beaches
- Maritime themes: light houses, mermaids, ships, particularly tall ships
- Art nudes
- Trains
- Wolves & dogs
- ANY Lantern Press card
- Maps & nautical charts
- Sunrises and sunsets
- Castles
- Chess
- Raptors & falconry
- Shore birds
- Bridges, especially covered bridges
- Waterfalls
- Clocks & time
- Auroras (Northern and Southern Lights)
- Paintings by Frank Frazetta
- Paintings by Boris Vallejo
- Hot air balloons
- Views from Space
- Ferris wheels
- Anything related to Edgar Allen Poe
- People eating ice cream

Looking at my favorites will also provide some insight as to what I like. I don't worry about duplicates because there aren't any; the message on every card is different!

Honestly though, in the end, any card you send is a gift! Like anyone, I am more interested in some things than in others, but when a card from a stranger arrives in my mailbox, I get excited no matter what is on either side of it!

I look forward to hearing about your world, your thoughts on love, death, sunrises and sunsets, the wind through the trees, the waves on the beach, or anything you'd like to tell me about.

Thanks for sharing with me views of the world you live in, I very much look forward to hearing from you!

Warmest regards -


Post scriptum: Sometimes the US Postal Service affixes a white, half-inch-wide sticker across postcards (for a barcode). This strip can be easily removed without damaging the card. Also: I don't send postcards in envelopes. Just can't bring myself to do it. They are postcards.

I do not register cards I that have not received.
