Two cards in my post office box yesterday.
On the back of the above card, sent from Boston, MA, on 11 Dec. 2006, is a black and white drawing that looks like it could be an abstract cow, but I'm not sure. I am sure I like the drawing, though. And the words inscribed... "We are all stronger than everything they taught us to fear." The line is from a song called Reinventing Axl Rose by a band called Against Me!. But I found that out on my own. It wasn't attributed on the card itself. The quotation marks are enough to tell me the words are not the artist's.
I like the card, which is a PA view. This one is from Somerville, MA, (and the song is about this particular Somerville and there is a reference to Suck City, which is the Irish Riviera where I lived for 25 years). It was mailed the same day as the other card. Sender says that having an IKEA nearby should be a step in the right direction towards happiness. Perhaps. I know my books are much happier now that they have lovely places to live. And the sender wishes me well, "and perhaps happy."
