When it comes to greeting cards and notes,
what do you prefer? Handwritten in cursive?
An eCard, a blank card or one with verses
inside? Personalize or simply write your name?
For me, it depends upon the occasion and
the person or persons involved. Some subjects
are sensitive in nature so I will compose a
poem for the intended person or select a
beautiful art card. Some of my favorite places
to find greeting cards either blank inside or with
a simple verse are gift shops at museums around the
world. Perhaps you have a favorite artist
or subject matter. I always scour places for
cards with music motifs or one with foreign
languages such as a thank you card with
multiple languages included. I seek out
greeting cards at drug stores too and
wind up in the humor section perusing
several as I laugh heartily. My daily dose
of humor and amusement. When I find
the perfect card, I am known to purchase
several of the same design and motif for
friends and family. A poetic love message?
Or perhaps a sympathy or get-well card?
When my stockpile is low, I find the time
and place to replenish the stash. Gift shops
await me! Sometimes, with a friend along,
we will both stand and read cards and laugh.
I try to make a purchase of some cards so the shop
owner will be pleased I found just the right
one. So, dear readers, what is your preference?
With or without verses? A special motif?
