This week so far has been stressful. There are several major fires in San Diego that seem to have no end, the air is drier with ash flying everywhere (despite a deceptive air clarity), and knowing that people nearby are affected add to this stress.
However, life goes on, and I did several errands this morning. When I got my haircut this morning, the subject of the fires naturally came up when talking to the guy who cuts my hair. He and his partner put up his parents. When I called my friend Scott after my appointment, I was relieved to find that he and his family are OK. He put his mother, sister, brother in law, and nephew up in his University Heights condo. That will definitely be a crowded house for a while. He told me they’re all exploring the nearby restaurants.
I stopped by the post office at Horton Plaza around noon. My PO box is there, and I check it occasionally for Internet related snail mail. It is the same address I advertise for the postcard exchange and I also list it on my other website. I got one postcard today from Chris Gregori of Post Due:
Since everyone in this swap has two partners, I look forward to seeing who else sends me one.
This weekend, I recieved my first international request for a postcard. I will mail this person a card in a few minutes. Someone else is getting a card, but more local. I will reveal cards and recipients sometime from now. The local one will be in give or take a day, while I’ll reveal the other when my international recipient gets it.
