Swimming, bicycling, walking/hiking, being outdoors and inspired by nature - it and art and my lovely peoples (including my lovely mail art peoples!) feed my soul :D.

I appreciate, and am grateful for, each piece that comes into my mailbox. Almost all outgoing pieces are documented on Instagram or Flickr; practicing tiny home living, I cannot keep very much of incoming mail -- I will use, re-use, re-purpose, recycle, or share what has been sent to me.
Please, Nothing religious. While I respect others' beliefs, please do not send any to my mailbox. Thank you, and Peace.
