About Me

I enjoy connecting to people across the globe through the postal system and mail art. I collect postage stamps, bus and train tickets, and other ephemeral bits of everyday life. Making hand carved stamps is a favorite pastime -- let me know if you'd like to trade block printed ATCs or postcards.

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, Bill Evans, 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 paper; logarithmic spirals; travel and maps; galaxies and gardens; linen; zines; typography and the end pages of books where they explain the typeface; accordions; the smells of gasoline, saw dust, fiberglass resin, gardenias, sweet peas, and honeysuckle. Plague Doctors. Coffee. A bookworm, I'm now exploring poetry.

Comment: Oh my gosh! I love everything! A beautiful ATC, and all the polar bears! I don't have a daiso here in NE, but I try to visit San Fran every few years so that I can go to Daiso! I stay in Japan Town and Daiso is in the part of the mall that is connected to the hotel I stay in..Hotel Kabuki. I LOVE Daiso. Was just there 3 weeks ago and got a Polar bear set! I love it, so cute. They didn't have the cut outs though... Those are fantastic! Thank you again for the ATC..what book was it? I couldn't read enough to tell! πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ
