family friends found this book in a vintage market in geneva, switzerland – of all places. now it has returned to sunny south african shores. i think it was printed in the fourties / fifties (no date unfortunately), though the postcards inside are all probably from the turn of the century. i love the cover. more at my flickr

There is just so much negativity all around us these days, have you noticed? It’s infesting the internet, it’s taking over the big screen, it’s cutting you off, it’s showing up on your bank statement, it’s staining your new shirt, it’s breathing down your neck, it’s not giving you a vacation, it’s talking behind your back, it’s stuffing you in a locker, it’s cheating on you, it’s charging you more, it’s giving you less, and it’s making you miserable! It’s making us miserable! I don’t think I know of a single person who couldn’t use some encouragement, so here it is!
i would love to receive one of these in the post. or anything in the post, really. found here (hey, you can buy them! they ship to RSA! and if you don’t live in south africa and you can buy stuff online all the time anyway, then screw you! in a positive way.)
