the interesting idea... the start of this project... the conversations to come

I'm a member of Post Crossing, the internet site for postcard exchange. I sent a card to another Post Crosser, Ilona from Germany. She asked that people tell her which magical power they would like to have. Her question really made me think!

In turn, I thought it would be an interesting project to ask people to pose Thought-Provoking Questions. I would do my best to answer with my opinion, and I would encourage others to add theirs.

And, so was born this blog! I hope that it will be the home for many interesting conversations in the year ahead!

Seeking advice? Getting what you give?

Silly, aka Sylvia from Vernonia, Oregon, focuses her attention on Post Crossing itself and asks:

If you could offer one piece of Post Crossing advice to a newbie like me, based on all your postcarding experience, what would it be?

Well, I would have two:

As a sender of postcards, do the best you can to find something of interest to your recipient (a question on the back of the card, for example!).

As a recipient of postcards, always say THANK YOU (there's my mother talking, now!).

Interestingly enough, in the same mail delivery as Silly's card came Zdenka's card, on which she asked:

Is life like a boomerang - whatever you send out (good or bad) will one day return to you?

I think so... boomerang out good Post Crossing vibes, and you'll get (as I have) good Post Crossing cards back. Boomerang out good; you'll get back good.
