About Ricardo...

Hi there!
I’m Ricardo and I live in Portugal, Lisbon with my wife and 2 daughters.
I work as a software developer, but my greatest passion is music. I play clarinet and bass clarinet. I play around with different bands and styles of music, but mostly I play: traditional jazz from New Orleans, Manouche Gipsy jazz and Choro from Brasil.
I love playing live music!!!

This is my band

I also love calligraphy, trying different pens, inks, learning about the history of letters and how to draw them.

And books. Classic Literature. Virginia Wolf, Somerset Maugham, Joseph Conrad, Dostoiévski... so many

Every card that I receive gets stuck to a wall in my home office.
I love staring at that wall, it is so beautiful to look at all those postcards from people all over the world.
Some of those postcards are hanged with the cover facing me. Others, with the back. It all depends on what captures my attention the most.

So yours will have its special place on my wall for sure.

I appreciate any / all cards I receive.
It's nice to be surprised by whatever you choose to send.

One postcrosser wrote this and I think it is so true:
"It´s not about receiving and collecting cards - it´s about sharing a part of yourself with the world.
Influencing people and leaving your mark in a place you may not ever get to visit.
It´s about connecting.
It´s putting a smile on a face you never get to meet.
It makes my day better."

Thank you for the time you take writing my card!

Peace and Love
