Though se [sic] looks so breathtakingly simple
There's mischief in every dimple.

Did you know that true love asks for nothing?
It's like all the years growing up watching your dad wear those raggedy clothes knowing he wanted to look good but he couldn't because he didn't have a lot of money and he wanted his kids to look right. That’s the kind of love Stevie Wonder is singing about...

I adore vintage postcards and actually any kind of vintage emphemera. The first three and the last look like they could be snapped today!

These are great, K. I have a friend on Gather.com who's a big collector of postcards; I'll have to send him over here for a look.

Mmmm... that love stuff is something I need to ponder today.
