As I look back on my childhood I dearly love my mother for the day we woke up early, while it was still dark. She made thermos's of hot chocolate, the home made kind with Hershey's cocoa powder. We headed North into New Hampshire. By the time the sun rose we were parked and ready for an adventure. Waterfalls, the smell of pine, climbs up forest paths and scampering about rocky streams. Beautiful fall leaves all around. I was with my family and yet had time and space for my own thoughts. One of the most delightful days of my childhood, visiting those mountains.
What is the closest mountain to you?

I love quotes and wise people. I discover things in odd places that I do not want to forget. Perhaps when you share things you are less likely to lose them. And so, inspired by an artist who designed postcards many days in a row, I am going to send postcards many days in a row, send messages. To you. Wherever you are. Because we are all growing, and we all matter.
Please, if you like one of them, feel free to "mail" it, too.
Or mail it, TO: Someone special in your world who would find it meaningful.
Life's wisdom. Pass it on.
The lovely postcard below, and my inspiration to share lovely postcards, comes from Colorado artist Sarah Uhl. Watch for more of Sarah's postcards...
