I had planned to make a trainjourney early in the morning, but when coming home from school last night in quite heavy snowstorm I decided it was probably wise to postpone. And today I heard on the news that trains are delayed!
I have a mission for today, I shall stay indoors and keep warm as much and long as possible. And not use trains for transportation. This is not a campaign against our national railway - it is simply me trying to avoid beeing stuck!
Above is a lovely nude postcard that was in bad condition and someone had thrown it away. I cut away most of the broken bits and glued it onto a bookcover. I think it works fairly well.
Yesterday I was thinking that why do we not do that more often, surprise our friends and loved ones, it is in fact so easy. A postcard can make such a difference! You should have seen me, I was rather down-ish when I walked home from the station. My whole gesture changed and I was suddenly filled with energy and love when I read the card. My dear friend Ian is a true master in spoiling his friends. He is one of the most generous people I know. And he not only sends postcards and gifts (I have received small gifts in the mail), but he often buys two tickets to a consert/ theatre/ film/ event/ exhibition instead of one, he always invites a friend along. I am very privileged to have a friend like him. I hope I have learned something from a master;)
