I got this card from someone in the US–I remember visiting lots of towns in the UK that looked like this, and there definitely a lot of towns in the US I’ve seem that look like this as well. This card feels like home.
This book is really bad.

I want soda really badly.
This beautiful postcard comes from the Ukraine. I love the colors and the ship–it makes me wonder where it’s going and where it’s been.
