About wayness...

Hello to the people who might write to me :-) Isn't it interesting how the instant you decide to send a card determines who you'll draw? One person who drew my address years ago called it "postcrossing destiny."

About choosing a card for me, usually I’d prefer something that's not a tourist or view card if possible. You can get an idea of my taste from my favorites, I’m pretty much a fave-aholic now (if you send one, could you please write the #?). But No multiviews, cats, Rockwell, Kirdy, Pixar, holiday stuff, Pomegranate pack or cards in envelopes if you don't mind. And please write to me too, I’m always happy to see a lot of writing on the back of the card.

Some suggestions if you like to have them to go by (as I do):

cards from museums (not views)
Year of the Pig
new UK stamp card, 3D, shaped, square, One Piece (not wanted posters), tarot, moody painting with windows, C.D. Friedrich, Kupka, Roerich (my collections: http://www.flickr.com/photos/93797982@N02/sets/)
art with a rose, sphinx, waterfall, moon, ocean, sun, ship with sails (no boats please) (art > photos for me)
particular artists: Gustave Moreau, Blake, Ernst, Doré, Magritte, Schinkel, Alma-Tadema, Carrie Chau, Munch, Menzel, Roerich, Bosch, Moebius, Rousseau, Koons
Indian (from India) painting
monster, imaginary creature (except fairies :-p)
book illustration, library (Not into photos of books)
Dalai Lama, Napoleon
stage/costume design, theater related (not buildings or views)
fantasy, SF, mythology, fairy tales
maxicard, stamp card
mystery genre
mural, mosaic, tapestry

Don't worry if you don't have anything on there, I love getting mail so send something you like and I'll be happy to see your card in my mailbox and read your message.

P.S. Please don't write to me about the weather, that's my postcard pet peeve *_* What really makes me happy is an interesting message :-D I'd prefer to read small, specific things about you than about broad hobbies or things about your town. You could write about random thoughts, last good movie you've seen, your favorite book, song, food, TV shows, the image on the card or where you got it, a poem, doodle, recipe, a dream you had, your philosophy, regrets, thoughts on life, what's been going on lately. What do you like & dislike about where you live? Do you believe in fate, free will, randomness, parallel universes, something else? I am interested in reading about you, hope to hear from you soon :-)
