WHAT'S IN FRONT OF YOU

"Nearsightedness"

Sometimes you don't see something that is right in front of you. While we were on vacation last week, I walked right into a tall, metal post. No excuses, but why would you plant a post right in the middle of the sidewalk? Then again, why would you not look where you are going? One of those embarrassing moments we all have, or at least I do. Today I just realized that part of my first name, Martha, includes the word, "art." How unobservant can one be? But what a delightful surprise. Art is not only in my genes but even in my name. And I only have a slight bruise on my cheek.

This summer I've been working to produce one postcard a day. 
You've seen some already. 
Here are others. 

Help me select the ones to turn into real postcards. 
You can email me your choices with your address to marthaslavin@gmail.com  
I'll send you a postcard back!
Or leave your choices in the comment section on this blog posting.

Happy Summer!

  1. Dear Martha, Your story reminds me of when I walked into a glass window in a Paris hotel's restaurant. The glass was so clean that I thought it was an open doorway. The pompiers had to administer first aid and I had stitches and a bruise at my eye for several weeks. Your postcards are gorgeous! I will PM you my address and look forward to receiving one once I decide which one I like best. Love, Sara
