Cosas mínimas (little things)

Fall has arrived in Amsterdam and it’s time to write a few letters delayed by the summer weather. I posted the first one to my grandfather in Oregon yesterday – I hope the ink survived the rainy trip from my jacket pocket to the mailbox.

Plans for this weekend include helping a friend move to a new apartment (my first chance at the Dutch system of moving through the front window with a rope hanging from the rooftop – very exciting!), trying a new recipe with the fresh fish bought at Noordermarkt, Café Brecht tonight for ‘a trip through German music history’ and some Czech beer, reading from Dreaming in Hindi, camera shopping (Sarah recommended the Panasonic LX3. Any thoughts?) and writing a few letters, of course.

I’m loving the postcards and images by Blanca Gómez, a graphic designer and illustrator from Madrid, from her project cosas mínimas, which means ‘little things’ in Spanish (via elephantine).
