Happiness and Misery
I was writing in my journal the other day, when I was thinking about how unhappy some people seem to be almost all the time, and lament about not being happy.  And, without thinking about what I was writing stream of conscious writing, I guess and this statement flowed from my pen. 
Happiness and Misery
Enjoy!
Just fyi This year, in the interest of honoring my own Word of 2018, easy, I’m taking it easy in creating my postcards!  I will be posting one postcard per month.  Hope you enjoy all 12!

Clarity
Isn’t it ironic how sometimes we achieve true clarity when we’re in the middle of a crises of some sort?  It’s almost like it takes a lot of distraction for that which is real, is honest, to become clear.
Clarity

Enjoy!

End & Beginning
At this time of year, I cant help but have the thoughts of things that end.  However, for every ending, somewhere, somehow, there is a beginning.

Backroad Drive
On the day we visited Cloudcroft, we took the backroad back home. 
Backroad Drive
The air was clear and cool, and the pine trees added a wonderful scent.
Picnic
We found a lovely spot for a picnic, too!  So nice to sit on a log that served as a rustic table!  Miki enjoyed not only the drive, but the picnic as well.  After all, I packed a lunch for her, too!
View of White Sands
As we came down from higher up the mountain, we saw this wonderful view of White Sands in the distance.  I couldn’t help but think of how great it was for the homes we passed – this is their view from the window!
Enjoy!
Visiting Cloudcroft
One day, we decided to take a drive up to the mountain town of Cloudcroft.  It’s quite the charming town and worth some artistic renderings.
Downtown Cloudcroft
The downtown is really picture perfect, and so I took an image of it and converted it to a crayon drawing.  People walked their dogs along the street – they, too, part of the population, after all!
Along the Boardwalk
It’s a great little town to just walk around, and they even have a boardwalk, complete with wood “sidewalks”!
Downtown Businesses
Here’s a more realistic view of the storefronts.  I thought they were colorful enough to not need to be converted to a crayon drawing!
Tasty Stuff
And, finally, we stopped at a wine tasting shop.  They had wines from several wineries in New Mexico, including some from this winery, based in a town not far away.  They even have red and green chili wine – rather spicy for me!
Enjoy!
