About Me

I enjoy connecting to people around the globe through the postal system and mail art. I collect postage stamps, bus and train tickets, and other ephemeral bits of everyday life.

I should spend more time outside, so I'm off to swim, or just float and watch the clouds. (gif by L. Boglio)

Favorite Music

Some favorite artists: Miriam Makeba, Keith Jarrett, Chopin, Dave Brubeck Thank You, Bill Evans, Chet Baker, Bach, Baguette Quartette, Rupa and the April Fishes, Beethoven, Tango No. 9, Vince Guaraldi, Andres Segovia, Allman Brothers, Camille, Sanjay Divecha, Lyle Lovett, Decemberists, Jessica Fichot

Some things I like

The circus, magic, and parades; Carnival; gypsy/bohemian style and steampunk; Commedia dell'arte; court jesters; Cirque du Soleil; Pierrot and Pierette; Totoro; the Ministry of Silly Walks; old ledger pages; kraft and handmade paper; Instax, logarithmic spirals; travel, maps, and aerogrammes; line engraved postage stamps and woodcuts; galaxies and gardens; linen; zines; typewriters and writing letters, typography and the end pages of books where they explain the typeface; playing piano and accordions; the smells of gasoline, saw dust, fiberglass resin, gardenias, sweet peas, and honeysuckle. Plague Doctors. Coffee. A bookworm, I enjoy literary fiction, sci fi, historical fiction, history, and I'm now exploring poetry.

Comment: Please tell me that when the nurse picked the rocks out of your face, it was also 2 days before picture day, so you can truly sympathize. My Mom insisted that I get my picture done anyway, and I was so embarrassed when she gave them out to family....Its funny now but at 7 I was mortified.

Comment: I think the post office is taking the term 'snail mail' literally. Happy to receive your New Year greeting. I like the stamps and the way you placed them along the side. Thanks!

I wanted to let you know that I love the B&W polaroids that you sent...3 instead of just 2!! I didn't know B&W film was available; I think I like it better than color. Thanks again!! -- PenPaperPostage

Sorry, got lost trying to find the Temple of Small Gods the other night! Welcome to Ankh-Morpork. There be dragons here, but they are mostly harmless, at least according to Lady Sybil.

Thanks for the glittery Emma Peel ATC for the MMH tag! It is the second bit of glittery mail I received today and I am most pleased. ^_^
