About Mari...

Groeten uit / Greetings from Haarlem, Noord-Holland.

I’m an art lover and avid reader. If you are too, please tell me of a favourite artist or author, perhaps a quote. Or mention a composer, a film, a building, a recipe, or whatever is an interest of yours. If you're going to visit my country, I could be your guide, if we have interests in common.

I'm a retired librarian, mother and grandmother. I help immigrants from war zones to master the Dutch language.

Question: have you seen the documentary films Cowspire (2014) and Seaspire (2021)? Highly recommended.

A particular interest of mine is beds - all sorts of beds. I don't know why, really, but they move me, enchant me. My avatar is a cupboardbed from a house in Arnhem's National Heritage Open Air Museum. I love paintings with beds in them, sickbeds included (e.g. by Hodler). I always read in bed, do you?
I also love backsides. See what you make of that.

Standard sized postcards preferred. My faves are cards not received.

I appreciate information on whatever you're sending. If you feel your English is poor, write in your own language (I may be able to translate it, or admire the characters -)). It would be nice if people wrote captions and comments to their postcards; that is, when the picture is not self-evident.

Thank you! / Dank je wel.
