Heirloom detective 2020

Hi-di-ho, kittens. I've missed you tons!

Well, not even Covid could keep this Heirloom Detective away from antiquing and subsequently reuniting even the smallest of treasures with its family. This 1944 postcard from sailor to his father somehow found its way from New Jersey (where the father never left!) to Tampa, Florida. The sailor's son was delighted to receive it as it gives a unique gli

Topics Mentioning This Author

Anna Akhmatova
“If you were music, I would listen to you ceaselessly, and my low spirits would brighten up.”
Anna Akhmatova, The Complete Poems of Anna Akhmatova

Pamela Lynne
“Words they could never say out loud were swimming through her head, tearing at her heart even as it was opening fully to him. They could not have forever, but they could have now, so she stilled her mind and focused on the feel of his arms around her and on the all the love she could give him in this one moment.”
Pamela Lynne, Dearest Friends

“I'm fully aware," Firth told a reporter for the English magazine Now, "that if I were to change professions tomorrow, become an astronaut and be the first man to land on Mars, the headlines in the newspapers would read: `Mr. Darcy Lands on Mars.”
Colin Firth

C.S. Lewis
“To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket, safe, dark, motionless, airless, it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. To love is to be vulnerable.”
C.S. Lewis, The Four Loves

Thomas Merton
“My Lord God, I have no idea where I am going. I do not see the road ahead of me. I cannot know for certain where it will end. Nor do I really know myself, and the fact that I think that I am following your will does not mean that I am actually doing so. But I believe that the desire to please you does in fact please you. And I hope I have that desire in all that I am doing. I hope that I will never do anything apart from that desire. And I know that if I do this you will lead me by the right road though I may know nothing about it. Therefore will I trust you always though I may seem to be lost and in the shadow of death. I will not fear, for you are ever with me, and you will never leave me to face my perils alone.”
Thomas Merton, Thoughts in Solitude
