Vita's Musings

Updated: May 26, 2024 Hello everyone!

The most memorable moments come in the smallest of formats - a postcard! I appreciate every single piece of mail I receive, and I let each of my partners know what I like about each swap they send me.


"Instead of looking for love, give it; constantly renew it in yourself and you will always feel its presence within you. It will always be there smiling at you, gazing on you kindly." ~ Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov

"Strive each day to make your life purer, richer, and more luminous. You will subtly and imperceptibly lead all of creation heavenward." ~ Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov

2022-05-12 Hello Everyone. Each and every one of my swaps has been mailed from the post office, all on time. If you have not already done so, kindly rate my swaps. If for some reason I sent you the wrong thing OR if you do not receive the swap, kindly send me a private message and I will make it right. Thank you so very much! Peace and good will to you all!

There is so much to look forward to as this year ends and a new one begins. decluttering and downsizing my abode, reading more, swapping more postcards, less screen time on social media, losing weight, eating more healthy, and creating beauty every where I walk. There is so much I can do to make the world a better place. It is all in the details ... it is the small things that matter the most. Kindness - respect for others - monitoring our speech - and so much more.

I can honestly say, now that I have received over 200 postcards to date, that I don't really have a favorite. When I receive a postcard, I read the writer's sentiments first, and I look at the postage stamps. I love beautiful stamps.

Send me the most beautiful - unique - unusual - fun - postcard that YOU like, not necessary what I like. I want my postcards to be as eclectic as my menagerie of friends.

The link above will direct you to every single postcard I have sent and received via Postcrossing and Swap-Bot. Confused about what send me? Send me a theme that is NOT already in my collection. Yep ...

I am 63 years of age with a joie de vivre. I embrace the world best through knowledge and communication. There is nothing I like more than taking in copious volumes of information from many disciplines. I love to laugh more than anything. Respect - diplomacy - kindness - love - honesty - all of these are very important attributes to possess.

I have a deep appreciation for aesthetics and the finer things in life, the arts, theatre, classical literature, and fine dining. I would also enjoy eating at a roadside diner on Route 66 or a hole in the wall if the people are fun. I'll take good vibes over ambience any day. It's all about good vibes for me. From the Ritz Carlton to the Beverly Hillbillies - they all appeal to me in equal measure. I love me some hillbillies and I love Jeff Foxworthy! He cracks me up on a whole nother level.

Among the many things I love:

Ballet. Chocolate Candy. Clarinet. Classical Music
Crystals. Stickers
Fine Dining
Fine Arts. Frasier. Gymnastics. Indian Food. Jigsaw Puzzles. Lindt Lindor Truffles (Milk). Saint Germain. Sushi. Technology. The Violet Flame. Tiramisu Cake from Whole Foods. Travel. Washi Tape

Quote Love

These are a few of my favorite quotes:

"The day I acquired the habit of consciously pronouncing the words "thank you", I felt I had gained possession of a magic wand capable of transforming everything." ~ Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov

If it's not going to matter in 5 years, spend no more than 5 minutes thinking about it.

Communicate. Even when it's uncomfortable or uneasy. One of the best ways to heal is to simply get everything out.

Every relationship has problems, because every person has problems, and the place that our problems appear most glaringly is in our close relationships. The key is whether or not we can hear from others where we are wrong, and accept their feedback without getting defensive. (Henry Cloud - Boundaries).

Post Cards

Unique - Classy - Eclectic - Top-Quality - Non-Touristy Preferred. I have hundreds of Touristy PC's from all over the world. I would much prefer Non-Touristy Postcards.

If you ever wish to send me anything extra, I would greatly appreciate receiving blank postcards, adult sticker and new/used US and International Stamps.

Blank PC's in an envelope are preferred.

Any of these themes would be a plus:

Non-Touristy. Doors and Windows Gnomes
Mermaids Mailboxes Men Only on a PC Maps of United States

Postcards I would love to receive:
A post card which reveals the most about you.
Your favorite postcard.
A postcard that would make me go "wow!"
Aesthetically pleasing postcards.
A postcard you love that is not on my list.

Thank you very much for the Postcrossing postcards you included in the Scavenger Hunt Train #1, that was very nice and put a smile on my face.

Thank you so much for sending me the PH used postcard train and the many extras, too! You are so thoughtful with the things you send and the wonderful notes you write -- you certainly know how to make your partners feel special. I'm so lucky to be one of them!

Thank you so much for the RAK PC of Swann Fountain! Love the 4 interesting tidbits you gave me. I like the jersey being put on the statue factoid!! When I was last in Philadelphia, I must have walked past the fountain but I don't recall - there was so much to see in that area that I was in awe of the history. And I couldn't get enough of Reading Market - the food!!! xxMuggleMom
