A Postcard Moment of Zen

A Postcard Moment of Zen

No need to hurry. No need to sparkle.
No need to be anyone but yourself.

Virginia Woolf

I saw that statement by Virginia Woolf this morning on Inspiring Quotes. Seeing it prompted me to walk away from war coverage TV for a few minutes and look at a set of recently arrived postcards. That act alone gave me a moment to pause. Breathe. A moment of zen. There’s no one unifying theme here except that the cards slowed me down.

There is something particular about postcards (and letters) from others. It’s a message that we’re all in this together. Take a little stroll with me and enjoy some pretty postcards for a few minutes. No hurry. No need to sparkle. Just be yourself. Unless you can be a unicorn; then be a unicorn.

    What a nice selection! Nature, an embrace, good thoughts, birds, details, art, a cup of tea and love that binds them together. Perfect timing for this one.
