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 so much for sharing your letter and for the lovely extras. Your envelope of Wonder Woman and the staying strong theme is on point. Plus so true!! I’m trying to get my mental health together so I can get stronger in other ways, and so I can be a better ally. It’s the whole, you gotta help yourself first on the sinking ship so you can reach out and help others. At least for me. I didn’t use to take care of myself before I did others, and it was never not worth doing but it takes a bigger toll and leaves me with less to help others. Take care of yourself and I’m so glad you’ve had positive interactions. I once had police show up to my house for a wellness check (it was a bad situation and a selfish friend who made it about her rather than about me, ironically—another friend told her to not do that because it would trigger me, and it did.). I have PTSD among other issues, and as soon as that officer showed unannounced, armed, I was triggered. Fortunately, I managed to shout, I have PTSD! And the officer put his own hands sort of up and took a step back and told me he was there just to talk and help. I was lucky. If I were a Black man, I don’t know if it would’ve been as good an interaction—I certainly would like to give that officer then benefit of the doubt that he would’ve done the same for anyone, but the news so often shows that’s not true. Keep on gardening but watch out for the heat!

Comment: Thank you for the beautiful Eiffel Tower postcard, I LOVE it!! Hope you had a good cook out for the 4th - we were surrounded by illegal fireworks at home and a tree caught fire around the block so it was a stressful night! :O Take care and be safe and thank you for the awesome "old" postage stamps!

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. ^_^
