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, 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: Thank you for sharing a bit about your weekly library adventures! I never thought to get recipes there (duh), and I’m very interested to learn more about the audiobook you mentioned prescribing poetry for your worries! Very clever 😉 Thank for sparking some inspiration AND doing so on a nice postcard of a mailbox I don’t yet have in my collection! Like the vintage postage stamps too!!!

Comment: Very cool information about the surrealist telephone game. I did some searching to find out more. This would be a fun art classroom activity. In my online search I found a game that I'll probably buy -- Telestrations. It's based on this idea. Kind of a pictionary game and telephone game. Thanks for the postcard Eclectonote.The Janis Joplin postage stamp was a nice touch.

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.
