Comment: Thanks for sending the group of poems: I like April and the Accusation best. Because you have a nice group of them I couldn't hel thinking you should make yourself a chapbook of them. It's not hard; it would work better is the long lines were broken so that each poem was a fairly even block, then on on a page, a nice cover...
Comment: Thanks for telling me about your fascination and visits to Ireland, it's one of the few European counties I have not visited and that's sort of odd because I've read a lot of Irish literature. The letter was well told and I learned some things about Ireland I didn't know.
Comment: (sorry for the late rating!)
I'm reading over your bucket list as i write this and I already found a few i'd add to my own such as having a beautiful garden, I don't have a green thumb but i wanna learn!
Also writing a novel would be amazing! even just for myself!
Your bucket list is so lovely, Thank you for sharing!
All the best,
(p.s I also have an endless bucket list)
(p.p.s If you don't mind what is forest bathing?)
Comment: I love that you mentioned A Fish Called Wanda in your letter. My mother and I have watched it several times through the years - what is it about that film?! Along the same quirky film lines - have you ever seen A Vampire's Kiss with Nick Cage? Such a great 80's film! Thank for the letter!
Comment: I really enjoyed reading your Bucket List and there were quite a few things on your list that are on mine as well! (Renovate house, beautiful garden, learn Italian, trace ancestry...) I hope we get to do as many things on our lists as possible. Thank you so much for sharing! :)
Comment: Hello Karen 😊 Thank you for beautiful postcard with Arya. I love it! She Is my favorite character. I did not read the books, but afrer I pass all of my school exams I want to. Have a nice week, Veronika 💖
Comment: Thank you for the lovely letter! I think it’s lovely how you wrote about writing. It’s sad to me that in a few years, no one will know how to read your lovely cursive since they have stopped teaching it in public schools. :( The art of letter writing is a gift and I hope it never truly dies.
Comment: Thank you for the pretty botanical PC. I think I will fussy cut out around the mug of flowers and stick it in my newest journal. I love to decorate my journals with swap-bot mail swaps. Upcycling and fond happy mail memories! Please remember to put the #3 etc after Botanical. So I can find to rate faster :) No worries! I found ya! <3
Comment: Hi Karen
It was so nice to read every day of a week in your life!
Wish you to stay strong and happy, try to realize your travels plan into life and just smile to every day you are given by God! 😇😊🌷
Hope your cat is doing well! 😉
Comment: I am lucky, we have a local club that offers a monthly star gazers event. Members set up their fancy telescopes and you can walk around and look at what they have dialed in. I could never afford a telescope as amazing as those. But I get to look every month. I enjoyed your card. Thank You.
Comment: Hi Karen, Thanks for sharing your hobbies with me. I too enjoy nature, nourishes our soul. Good on you for getting into visual art, sounds interesting. Sorry to hear you had thyroid disease, I have low thyroid. Did you receive my email swap to you, sent it a few days ago. Happy swapping. Karen.
Comment: Loved your email. I could relate to a lot of it. I'm nearing retirement and want to spend a lot of it being creative. I think I'll take up some art classes (I find the thought intimidating, but I should dive in).
Comment: I love the painting of the oranges and the tissue paper so much - and the painting is owned by the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, so there's a chance I could see the real deal! Funny, as much as I like music, I didn't think musically at all when addressing the prompt, but you're right - harmony is such a beautiful thing. Take care, Karen!
Comment: Thanks so much for the NY postcard. It brought back a lot of memories for me. Prior to moving to Oregon 10 years ago, I lived in NJ my entire life...right outside of Manhattan. I miss the entire northeast but especially NYC!
Comment: Thank you so much for the Alice PC! I agree with your list except on the scent of coffee. Fresh coffee I like the smell but coffee that has been brewed already gives me headaches. Go figure! LOL!
Comment: thank you so much for the message on my profile. I love these little swaps. just a little note: when doing these swaps please always put the swap name on them so it is easy to go right to the swap and rate them. Plus, you get your ratings a lot quicker if your partner doesn't have to take the time to go through every swap to find what swap it is for! HUGS we are all new at this at some point....
Response: Okay, thanks. I think sometimes I remember to do that and sometimes I don't. :)
Comment: Hi Karen, Thanks for finally sending the card. I am sorry to rate you a 3 but there was no communication that the swap would be sent late. You clicked sent on Oct 2, 2018 your swap envelope was postmarked Oct 20, 2018. There was no swap information on the card so I had to do a bit of digging to figure out where this swap belonged. Please be mindful to let your partners know about late sends.
