    Three more postcards made it to my mailbox:

    Steve's "Morris Dancers in Flight" Great atmosphere! You can almost hear the music from the accordion and the fun all around!

    Ryan's "Trout Brook". Notice. A sad story about the hunting clubs. Why is it happening?

    Matt's "Roots". Very unusual look of a dry stream bed.

    Thanks anikin.

    It is actually a slope that has fallen away from the base of the trees above.

    More cards arrived since I last posted:

    "Taipei Night Market Delights" (Anikin): the only color print so far. Makes me hungry!
    "Mann mit Hut" (Pilami) Oh, yeah! There's something just so 'right' about this picture to me -- the coat, the hat, the textures, the tones... Makes me intensely interested in your photo novella. Wish I could see it.
    "Trout Brook" (Kc2edn?) Postal markings sometimes obscure the title or name, etc. Not complaining -- to me it's part of the postcard esthetic. I really like that old door, with generations of handprints and fingerprints on it. The sign, for some reason, reminds me of my maternal grandpa, a machinist and farmer who would have spent all his time huntin' and fishin' if he could have gotten away with it... Wish I had a picture of the fishing boat he built in his basement. He intended all along to cut it in half to get it out and built it with that in mind. It was, he said, just too cold to build it in the garage and besides, grandma would have been mad if she had had to spend the winter parking outside in the driveway!
    "Waterfall near Skagway Alaska" (Anthony) What an enchanting scene and darn sexy pile of rocks! The woods at the top fading away into the mist gives an air of the kind of mystery I always find in falling water. Beautiful tones, too. My wife appropriated this one and asked whether we can go to Alaska next year. No, dear. The TV show 'Northern Exposure" was not a documentary.
    "Morris Dancers in Flight" (Box Brownie) Is there a Germanic flavor to this festival? I'm guessing from the costumes and from the extensive beer signage behind the dancers. You sure caught the right moment!
    ""Roots" (Matt King) Another picture that makes me want to ditch the computer and head out into a woods for the afternoon. I wonder what keeps the trees from sliding down the mound of dirt, or toppling over? Very cool!
    "The Olga Store" (Steelbar) Another one my wife wanted to appropriate for herself before I'd gotten a good look at it! I sense a quintessential photograph but exactly how mystifies me. I'd like to go there and see for myself. Sandy would like to go with me.
    "Washington and Jefferson" (James O'Gara) Horizon line all askew, playing games with drawing and perspective. Makes me think of one of my favorite movies, "Earth vs. the Flying Saucers" for no particular reason I can think of other than in the movie the alien baddies destroyed both of these monuments. Fun!

    Thanks, everyone! This is shaping up to be a whopper of an exchange!

    Mine will be posted by Tuesday.
    I wish that I knew what I know now when I was younger. ("Oohlala, by the Small Faces").

    I plan to make up for it by the time I''m 84 ...
