...So who are YOU?
We anticipate visits from some of the following:
Someone seeking inspiration to change their life. A reader seeking passive escapism. A letter writer of the future, or one of the rare existing ones. A visceral book lover. You're captivated by art and photography, by how people live. You travel, or you'd like to (it's never too late!) Someone who wanders around and notices the subtle things that scream out, beautiful and ugly. Perhaps someone who likes colours. An individual who likes world cinema and doesn't mind subtitles. A quiet dreamer. A mind for images. A conversationalist/raconteur. Someone who has seen a lot of the world, or one who is still standing at the foot of it. A sensationalist, a nihilist, a sentimentalist. A lost soul? You like old postcards? Certainly we're happy to receive aesthetes of all descriptions... but be sure that on this site there's something for almost anyone.
