I guess concordant collectors need to:
I’d climb every mountain
And swim every ocean
Just to be with you
“You Are the Reason” Calum Scott
If I crossed a million oceans just to be with you
Would you ever, let me down?
If I climbed the highest mountain just to hold you tight
“Because I Love You” Shakin’ Stevens
Meanwhile: Would it be possible for you to post information on the World Post Day celebrations in your local GPO or branch Post Office? It is hard to get information nowadays. I think if we are to collaborate and share early information, it would be great for all collectors!
