About Melanie...

Hello postcard fan,
my name is Melanie, I have been living in Wermelskirchen for more than 40 years now, the town is located in the middle of the `Natural Arena Bergisches Land´. If the city becomes too tight, my brain too full or the stress at work too much, then I can switch off wonderfully here => in our forests.
I work as a nurse on a stroke unit & I´m also a practice instructor / mentor there.
Sometimes I ask myself the serios question: am I typically german ???
Because: mostly I´m usually late (academic quarter?...🤣, better hang on 30 to 60 minutes...all annoy); I don´t wear Dirndls (😄 I don´t live in Bavaria), but in North Rhine Westphalia, I don´t like beer; I don´t belong to any club & I don´t like sports at all (except Olympic Games or World Championship on TV); I have a sense of humor (a day without a joke / a laughter is a lost day) and my car is just a lokomotion to get from A to B.
BUT in fact, people, I seperate the garbage (- who on earth invented this stupid `Dual System´?,it doesn't work anyway...!) 🤣🤣

My favorite leisure activities :
- read a good book ( (historical) novels / testimonials / Autobiographies /
Thrillers / Bible / rarely also Sci-Fi )
- hiking
- travel
- meet friends
- visit family
- sing (preferably together with others or in a church choir)
- be creative (crafting with paper and rubber stamps / photographing /
scrapbooking / knitting / silk painting / making costume jewelry from
pearls / casting small figures from concrete /...)
- redesign the garden => friendly for insects, birds and squirrels
- visit Botanical Gardens
- visit museums
- go to the cinema, hear good music (or both)
- writing (postcards ...what a surprise!, letters, holiday-diaries, little
Writing postcards transcend geographical & political boundaries, is
able to connect people from across the globe on a wonderfully old-
fashioned way. It´s like a mindful gift in this fast moving time of ours.
Almost like slow motion, and YES: It´s a passion 😊!

If you are now at a loss as to which card you could send to me – don't worry, I'm happy about every postcard that finds its way into my little mailbox 😀. But if you're someone who needs a list to get along, look:
my favorite color : orange ~ I like the glitter on the surface of the sea ~ everything related to the theme `sea´ ~ people who play an instrument ~ birthday cards in July ~ plants ~ bees/bumblebees ~ birds ~ self-designed cards, of course, too.

Please, write something about yourself or what moves you, what you experienced or how your day was today, what scares you or what you were very happy about in the last time, your favorite quote or a poem, with what gifts/talents/superpower has God blessed & equiped you?
Now I have no choice but to wish you a lot of fun choosing and writing the card.
Stay healthy & merry & have peace in your 🧡
God bless & carry you all, every minute of life.
