Today, for the 20th day of February, I sent three pieces of mail for the Month of Letters challenge. All three were Postcrossing cards, two to Germany and one to the U.S.
To Anklam, Germany, an atmospheric evening shot of Jackson Square in New Orleans. The Postcrosser there, a 28-year-old named Lydia, loves New Orleans and specifically mentioned cards from there on her wish list. She also cited vampires, Harry Potter, and other fantasy and horror favorites, so I thought the moodiness of the scene might appeal to her. Also, I love New Orleans, too!
To San Luis Obispo, California, I sent a postcard of the Blue Ridge Mountains to a student named John whose “favorites” list all seemed to be photographs of mountains.
To Leipzig, Germany, a lovely painting by Belgian artist Herman Richir (1866-1942) of a woman reading. The painting (c1910) is called La Partition. I chose it because the recipient, Zoe, is a bookseller.
