One Stamp: Responses

Last Monday, I asked the readers of the blog to tell me which stamp (only one!) summarises their life on the last weeks/months. I put the same question on Twitter.

I did not expect to receive so many responses. I like the fact that each choice highlights different aspects of life during this period. All together, they make a good summary.

Graham - Livin' La Vida Lockdown / @GB_Stamp

Handwritten Letter / @letterappsoc

"I like the doomed one but this one perhaps..."

Hoy te recomiendo / @cazajuguetes

"Thinking of so many people I can't meet."

Scott Thomson / @positivelypost

"There's been a lot going on in my head!"



"This one from 2000 called Digital communication describes clearly the state of our museum in recent weeks when we have taken a real digital leap!"

"(...) explain how your life has been these last few weeks. It has certainly been up and down (mostly down). Seek comfort where you can."

Joy / The Postal Picture

"Well it might be this one as things have certainly slowed down to a snails pace and any adventure available is only taking place in my head. See that unruly hair? Nothing compared to my lockdown hair. Despite hairdresser warnings I may snap any time and head for the scissors."

Postcrossing / @Postcrossing

"A bit late, but we would probably pick this one — the cancellation looks a bit like a mask." 


  1. Amazing to see them altogether. I like each response, they make a great compilation.

    1. I agree. I can relate to the idea behind every choice to some extent-

  2. The snail summarises both my activity level and my snailmailing hobby!

    1. Yes, it's a perfect stamp for me, too :)

  3. I have had moments where I relate to each one of these!


Thank you for coming. All your comments make me extremely happy.
