I Believe in a Thing Called Love

Hello Everyone!

Does anyone recognize the song title? I hope you do. It's by The Darkness and my friends and I drunkenly created a facebook petition demanding that this should be our prom song. We infuriated many however, got no results. It is still the go to jam at all of our parties though. An awesome song with a funny but true message.

Anyways, enough with my pop culture/lame life references. I hope everyone had a lovely weekend. Mine was spent working and going to Yankee Stadium. The Yankees won, although we didn't stay for the whole game due to the fact that we thought it would be rained out. Regardless of the fact that A-Rod did not hit his 600th career home run, it was still a fun day! What did you all do this weekend?

But back to the reason you're all here, the postcard! This card comes from T. in Russia. The text reads as follows:
Love for me is universal and love is everything in our universe. They say that love will save our world! So we have only to teach ourselves to love.

Thank you T. for the postcard! Your words are very beautiful. Love should be our world and our universe. Too many people are fueled by greed and hatred instead of love. If the opposite were true, and more people were fueled by love and happiness instead of greed and hatred, we would live in a much better world and the world would be safer!

Everyone should make their goal for this week to learn how to love better! I hope everyone has a fantastic week!

Thanks again T.,

Love from Holland

Hello everyone!

I'm sorry for my sporadic posting! Life has caught up with me. I suppose it's better than death catching up though. Anyways, that's my lame excuse for not posting all week! In addition, I only have a few postcards to post, which makes it difficult to post a lot as well. But all in all, the project is faring well! Thanks to all my trusty readers, whoever you are! Another important update, I will now be trying to post at least once a week on Mondays. Any extra posts are just icing on the cake. Life is getting especially hectic now that my summer is coming to a close and I have to worry about moving into a dorm again, eating cafeteria food, and changing my mailing address (something that the post office never seems to understand).

Anyways, here is what you're actually here for, the text on the postcard:
Your question about love is a hard one. How do you describe an emotion that can't be put into words? That affects mind, body, and soul? Which can be so wonderful or devastating? Let me know!

Thank you T. for your card! The picture of Amsterdam on the front is very gorgeous. I wish I had an answer to all of your questions! I've been reading about other peoples ideas of love for about a solid month now and I still have no answers myself. Perhaps it's best if we just try to keep our idea of love as a question? But of course us silly humans with our developed brains need answers now, don't we?

That's it for today everyone! I'm off to work! I hope everyone has a great, love filled weekend!

Isn't This Adorable?

Hello Everyone!

I hope you are all having a great week! My postcard intake seems to be slowing down quite a bit lately! I hope those of you who are reading who have not yet submitted a postcard are going to do so soon!

Not much is new to report here! I successfully went camping and did not get eaten by a bear, which I think is a good thing. I still have a few postcards left to post, also a good thing! I've been trying to space them out so that I don't run out of things to talk about!

Anyways, enough of me babbling, here is the text on the back of this adorable card from H.:
Enjoy this card showing an aspect of love: kisses!

H., thanks so much for the card! Kisses are definitely one of my favorite aspects of love! And I'm not sure how you guessed it, but these types of cards are always my favorites! I just love the idea of marrying your childhood sweetheart. And also, the kids are always so adorable!

Thanks again H.! I have another busy weekend ahead of me so I will try to post either Sunday or Monday when things calm down a bit!

Please e-mail me to send in a postcard! Keep spreading the love everyone!

German Love

Hello Everybody!

What a busy week I've had! I went to New Jersey and worked and now I am going camping! I can barely find time to blog! But I finally found the time (although I probably should be packing, I leave in less than an hour). I've had this postcard for a few days now, and I'm glad I finally can post it! It's from A. in Germany

The text says:

Love is my reason to get up in the morning. When I see the news on TV in the evening, I don't want to take one step in this world. But the existence of my two boys and husband makes sense for me.

A., thank you so much for this postcard! I completely agree, sometimes it is hard to even consider getting out of bed with all the evil that seems to be filling our world. It is especially difficult because we are bombarded with images of hate and violence everyday on the news, in the papers, online, anywhere! While I don't have children, I understand the power love can have over a person. It helps me get out of bed and remain optimistic! Now if only, once we're out of bed, we can convince the media to bombard us with images of love and happiness, we would be all set!

Thanks again A., and I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend! What are your favorite things to love? It doesn't have to be just people, chocolate, dogs, and magazines all count!

Hope to hear from you soon!

Happy Fourth!

Hello Everyone!

I'm sorry I've been M.I.A. again! My birthday was on Friday and I spent Thursday and Friday celebrating! And then of course, I worked all day and night Saturday and yesterday was 4th of July here in the US. I had really wanted to post this postcard yesterday but I went to fireworks with friends (fireworks that never actually went off) and then didn't get home until I was absolutely exhausted. So I hope everyone, both in the US and elsewhere, had a happy 4th!

The reason I had wanted to post this card yesterday is because it is patriotic. Both the picture on the front and words on the back moved me.

Here is the text on the back of the card:
I had held onto this card for a long time, I thought about just keeping it but I think out of all the cards I have, this best represents love. A lot of friends and family have served in the military, and I think to possibly sacrifice your life is true love for your country, it's ideals, and your family. Whether you agree with any war or not, it's important to recognize and appreciate the efforts of our soldiers.

Whether you are a citizen of the United States or not, we can all appreciate that soldiers, from here or abroad, are important and should be honored, regardless of where you stand politically. While I don't always agree with whatever is going on politically, having friends and family who have served in both Afghanistan and Iraq, you can bet all the money you have that I support our troops and I support their getting home as quickly and safely as possible.

B., thank you so much for reminding all of us the importance of supporting our troops, and reminding us that we should all love our country as much as they do. While patriotic holidays like the 4th remind us of this, we should try harder to honor our troops and patriotic ideals all year round.

Thanks again B. for your card and your words! I will have another postcard up in the near future.

Until next time,
