I love this time of year. I get to pretend to myself and lie to others that the "gray" that lurks in my head year-round…
Can be blamed on precipitation or Earth's angle in relation to the sun or the clouds in the sky and their color or how much daylight there is or how cold it was that day…
A fantasy that if my cards are played right, the unweather holds out… I can easily get half a year of self-delusion out of it.
Sent via postcrossing to Broomstick.
So this person was the latest postcrosser to stress me out. She doesn't want metered stamps. She would like postcard artwork but only if it's your artwork... no adult coloring book pages. I did not even have to look at her wall to know she was some sort of postcrossing veteran who has reached the point in her hobby where she can gatekeep postcarding for other people. Yeah. Over 1000 postcards. Does postcrossing send people an official gatekeeper badge after a certain number of cards sent?
I should not have sent her this card.
The past 3 cards are over 3 months overdue. Yeah. A lot of that is my fault. 90% But...some of that is this person's fault. Reading this profile and imagining myself as someone whose only way to express themselves might be to color in some adult coloring books...then this bird comes along and tells them their art isn't good enough for her.
Ugg. And don't get me started on the stamp thing.
She actually encouraged me to go and look at my profile to see if I was doing this to anyone.
I am on medication now since writing this postcard. I am still deluding myself though.
