postcards from paris and germany

it is nearly impossible to convey complete feelings through a postcard. but small amounts of visual detail can be enough, and enough to keep one longing for more, wondering what your dear friend is experiencing, and feeling joy for their travel.

there are very few people who could tolerate my need for quiet and reflection on such a trip and this friend is just the one. her note, "wish you were here is an understatement" literally brought me to tears. to see the louvre, the seine, walled medieval german towns and indomitable stone castles with probably the only other person i know more introspective than i am? well. it has been such a long time and thursday we reunite in sonoma county. i can't wait, friend b. i miss you.
besides, it's birthday time...
