Box of Kindness

Filed in Friends, Pictures

I was expecting a package from the States, but I wasn’t expecting one that overflowed with the kindness and generosity of a man I am pleased to call my friend. Richard, who I’ve known for about five years as fellow AlphaSmart user and mod leader from the now defunct AlphaSmart Community Centre, had recently started his own photo site where he’s also selling 5×7 prints. I ordered 5, and received a note from him that he’d put in something more in the box.

The “something more” turned out to be 7 additional notecards, and 9 postcards.

Each of the 5 notecards I’d ordered came in its own acid-free, lignin-free clear bag, and all five cards were tied with a gold elastic string. I could literally feel the kindness in the box and on the string, too.

The beautiful cards gave me an excuse to try out the 2MP camera that’s in my new handphone (the wonderful SonyEricsson K750i) and for comparison, I took another with my Nikon 5900 (below).
