I am living in a historic town in the rural province of Zeeland, in the south-west of the Netherlands.
I am married and a mother of two sons. For over forty years, I worked as a primary school teacher -- I retired some years ago.
I've always read a lot. As a teacher, I enjoyed reading and creative writing with my pupils the most. I am a member of two creative writing groups and a writer of haiku, poems and short stories.
I started collecting postcards many years ago. Some of my postcard interests are:
- Japanese Christmas cards with a geisha!
- Angels (For example: Linda Peltola- Mary Kilvert
- Beach chairs
- Books, texts, book illustrations, reading women in art
- Cat-cards by Rumyanzev V. March. (Russia):
Cat meeting an Angel
The first snow
Spring with a friend

And please no towns, villages and buildings.
