About a month ago, I joined a post card exchange group called Postcrossing. You create a profile, request a few addresses, and once the post cards you send are received, you will start to get them from all over the planet. It's my new happy-maker. I love finding unique cards to send out, and you never know when you will get a little treasure in the mail.
My first little treat arrived this past weekend. I swear, the giddiness one feels upon opening their mailbox and seeing a colorful little card is one of life's best small pleasures. It's fantastic.
The card was from Annette in Achterhoek, Holland. She is a graphic designer with beautiful hand writing. In my profile, I asked for people to include their favorite songs and artists. So Annette suggested an artist called Dotan and his song "Home". Dotan is a young fellow
who grew up in Amsterdam and, from what I can tell, is quite popular in Europe. He's like the love child of Phillip Phillips and Bastille. (And easy on the eyes, too.)
Music is a common thread between countries, cultures, and people. Learning what songs others across the globe love is so exciting to me. Makes the vast planet, and its billions and billions of inhabitants, seem a bit more relatable.
Hope you, too, enjoy this new little tune.
