I also learned that at least one of the postcards I mailed never made it, even though I confirmed that I had the address correct. Rats. ETA: the postcard finally arrived - it took almost 2 weeks to get to the middle of the US, but at least it arrived.
Anyway, lots to get through, so get comfy, mmmkay?

There's no way to make this look right on a computer, but this is a 3-D postcard. The image shifts a little bit when you look at it from different angles. Unfortunately it just looks blurry as a .jpg. It's also heavy, so I put regular first class postage on it, even though there was no notice that it was needed - and I did hear today that it arrived safely.

One of the images from last year's HIDE/SEEK exhibit at the Tacoma Art Museum. I sadly neglected to note the artist and photo title. I admit this picture weirds me out a little - I think the guy in the center is wearing a mask,, but it's hard to be sure. The whole thing looks a bit off.

|"The Nature of Desire", Duane Michaels 1986|
"THE NATURE OF DESIRE
Our lives are just one moment,
a breath imagined by the senses.
And that moment is a great thought.
And that thought is a desire,
The urge to being and to be love.
All at once, altogether, the same"
If you're wondering why there's a strange red border, my scanner doesn't like postcards with mostly white backgrounds and will create separate images for the blocks of text and/or photos if I don't use a colored background that shows a bit.
Don't go away, there's more!

Blondie rules. First, last, and always.
In the 5th or 6th grade I would go to a friend's house and we would listen to her parents' copy of Parallel Lines. Once I got beyond the mind-blowing shock of someone's parents owning - and listening to - rock music, this album quickly established itself on my permanent desert island list. Keep in mind that we were also 9 or 10 years old, and we spent a lot of time giggling about the album version of "Heart of Glass" has the phrase "pain in the ASS" in it.
I still want to be Debbie Harry when I grow up.

I've either had this for several years, or I picked it up some time last year, I really can't remember. It's pretty self explanatory!
