introducing….postcard sets! now for sale over in my etsy shop. many of my out of town friends know how much i love to send postcards. i just do. they’re quick and friendly and i can be sweet and short and to the point which is often: i miss you. not sure why i haven’t thought of offering my own postcards before (have i mentioned that i’m sometimes slow to catch on) but here i am, doing just that.

i spent the day as a social worker in radiation oncology. whenever i’m there i meet brave, brave souls, showing up for their lives in the most serious of ways, yet some with such perspective and clarity and ease and humor. i answer their questions, counsel them, meet with their families, provide resources, and simply try very hard to be a speck of goodness and helpfulness in the span of their visit. at the end of the day i leave the building more thankful, more saddened, more uplifted, more heavy, more persuaded by humanity and courage. my social work roots, as conflicting as they are to me sometimes, still inform everything i do. and i’m really thankful for that.

other thankfuls:
for tv, specifically so you think you can dance? totally hooked.

for all of your comments this week. you guys are sweet and kind and honest. thank you.

for my mom who left an enthusiastic voice mail for me today after receiving a special something (hi, mom) in the mail.

for brand new pajamas given to me by my bff last week. i have a tendency to hold on to pajama sets for years and years and it was time to finally let my beloved raggedy set go and embrace a new, cleaner pair of pjs. thank you, gina!

speaking of pajamas, i’m in my new ones right now as i type this post from my living room, sitting on the red couch, bare feet propped up on the leather chair in front of me. it’s dark, and my farsighted vision is very, very tired. where are you right now? i’d love to know the scene….

wednesday’s giveaway winner is: stephanie alaine!!! stephanie, get in touch with me so i can get your print out to you! givaway continues for just two more days. enter a comment to enter to win. i’ll draw today’s winner (as i’m writing this so late, almost midnight) tomorrow evening.

Sending much love,

    How how fabulous! I love postcards too – I send them all the time (even though I’m seldom on vacation – they’re not just for vacations you know!} Hee Hee Anyway, I’ve not check blogs in a week and look what I’m missing out on. Sheesh I hope I’m not too late!

    those postcards are too pretty to send out, I would be selfish and keep them all to myself… went to the shop and saw all the nice prints you have, you do a great job.

    I live right beside a beautiful cornfield and we just raised a new flag on the pole outside our home on the farm – while our 5 dogs watched and the crackles made monkey sounds in the trees. That’s my setting – thanks for sharing yours.
