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, 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: Hi Amy and thank you for the fab bundle of coffee dyed papers. I love this technique and the results it gives. And you sent me such a fun variety of papers to use. Your little sewn pocket is adorable and thank you for the stamps you included. And I must tell you that the envelope you made to send all of this is just fantastic! I hated to tear it open and am going to save it and use pieces of it for future projects. Thanks so much for a great swap!!

Comment: Love the envie! I thought it was a pencil telling at the envelopes, but now I'm wondering if they are singing? Anyway, it will get included in my journal. Thanks for the extras. Happy autumn to you!

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.
