Comment: Thank you for the lovely postcard. i can't imagine what the weather is like in Arizona but it's incredibly hot here too. Only, I guess, it's way more humid in south east Asia.

Comment: Thank you for the deliciously barbed Ann Taintor card, Halloween stickers, and your great message! You're right, it's still quite humid and summery here -- I wore shorts and flip-flops this morning, but I'd gladly be in jeans, boots, and a sweater :p The most interesting place I've visited would have to be Tokyo, which I saw for the first time in April with my sister, during the exquisite sakura season. I fell in love with the efficient transit, kind and polite people, crisp weather, and general feeling of safety; I'd love to visit more of Japan for a longer period next trip! (Of course, New York City is endlessly interesting and educational, and I would never turn town a visit.) As for people I'd like to meet, living or not... You have a pretty solid list :) As a kid, I wanted to meet Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. My current list would have to include Judith Light (who I have met, briefly, and she was a dear), Dame Emma Kirkby, Dame Helen Mirren, Leonardo da Vinci, Zelda and F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ella Fitzgerald, and G.F. Handel. Hope your mailbox is good and full! ♥

Comment: hi Karen, thank you for the art/interesting card: i need such little educational random surprises ... good exercise for the brain (gotta stay curious!) i wouldn't think Phoenix has no signs of Halloween popping up now ~ despite the blue sky & cactus, that popular October holiday is pretty good indication fall season is upon us! have a fun month :)

Comment: Thanks for the OKC Memorial card. I have lived in Oklahoma most of my life, but I cannot bring myself to visit the memorial. I recently watched the American Experience (I think) documentary on the bombing, and it took me back to that time too much. I'm an hour away and the sound could be heard in parts of town here. I'm not sure why that moment feels so raw for me. I love the Oklahoma sticker!
Response: Glad you "get" it. Didn't send it to bring back the sounds, smells, etc. Thanks for the heart. Needed to send it to someone who would appreciate how I feel about it. Best wishes Karen

My head is swirling with Halloween journal page ideas using these things! I must say, of the swaps I've done, you're the only person who's been as generous as I try to be....and that means so much to me. I literally can't thank you enough! And you were right about swapping in the past, you were my very first swapbot swap partner! I hope you have an amazing Halloween, happy creating!
