Vita's Musings


A favorite postcard I received recently:


I would love to swap Christmas greeting cards with you. If you are interested, how about sending me a private message to exchange addresses. That would be soooo much fun.

I can honestly say, now that I have received over 200 postcards to date, I don't really have a particular postcard I would like to receive. 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.

My profile photo showcases postcards I absolutely love. If you happen to see one of your postcards on display, it is my way of saying thank you from the bottom of my 💜💖💘.

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 62 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 nuther level.

Among the many things I love:

Americana * Ballet * Chocolate Candy * Clarinet * Classical Music * Crystals * Decorative Stickers * Fine Dining * Fine Arts * Frasier * Gymnastics * Indian Food - Not Spicy * Jigsaw Puzzlers * Lindt Lindor Truffles (Milk) * Saint Germain * Sushi * Technology * The Violet Flame * Tiramisu Cake from Whole Foods * Travel * Washi Tape

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.

Quote Love

These are a few of my favorite quotes:

To be old and wise, you must first be young and stupid.

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).

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.

mchesser12 rated for Vocabulary Postcard #1 on Oct 8, 2021
Comment: Thanks for sharing kerfuffle with me. I know this word, but don't use it in my everyday vocabulary. I'm trying to remember how/why I recognize it. Maybe a movie?
Response: I love the word "kerfuffle." My friend who lives in Chicago uses the word ALL the time. It's so much fun to hear the word and to say it. The word was used in the Movie "Anne of Green Gables" I think. All the best to you. Vita Lynné

Hi, VitaLynne, I just saw your second message today. I am tech challenged because I don't even know where to go to hear the audio clip. I would send you my email address but I don't know how to do that so you alone would see it. I am sorry I am so clueless. Sharon (sjbookworm)
