About Me

I am a HUGE lover of snail mail and have all kinds of exciting mail stuff going on. They know me at the Post Office. :)

My interests are all over the place. I love all art, all history and all science. I think that the three are related to each other. I read a lot and write letters, postcards, send greeting cards and make mail art. I like journals of all kinds.

I suppose that I am not very whimsical. Not a teddy bear person. I also kind of hate geese with flower wreaths around their necks and cute little cows. My tastes do tend to be a bit edgy. I love color and abstract paintings. Walls with peeling paint layers fascinate me. I will admit that I have actually made purchases in the grocery store because the packaging is really interesting and I know I can make something out of it later. And I do!

I am pretty enthused about things that cost little or no money. I love pamphlets that explain events at historical sites. Stuff that I find outside like rocks, nests, shells, etc. are definitely treasures. Stationery is cool, but I also like to write letters on the backs of tourist maps and other found ephemera. Makes for an interesting letter. I am very concerned with the environment and try hard to stick with the reduce , reuse, recycle rule.

I consider myself to be a somewhat spiritual person but I don't like the dogma that is connected with organized religion. I really do like actual churches, synagogues, temples, shrines, mosques. I like sacred spaces.

History is about life for me. I like the history of any place. Fascinating things happed everywhere as far as I'm concerned. Little museums in tiny towns are great. I read a lot of history and biography.

Science is life. Love marine science, biology, geology, botany, all of it really. As I already said, I think of myself as an environmentalist and I am a nature lover for sure.

Reading is a passion and I like all kinds of books including books for children and young adults. Reading anything related to any kind of history, science or art is great. I also like literary novels and mysteries. I haven't read a lot of science fiction or fantasy but I 'm open to it. The only things I'm not very interested in are trashy romance and cheap poorly written thriller garbage or religious books.

I am pretty easy to please. I do not expect anyone to create something that is tailor made for me. Express yourself when picking out cards or putting stuff together. I like most things and I am very open to what you want to send me as long as it is not a religious pitch or political.

Postcards I Love-

Art cards of any kind

Artists

Any religious building or sacred space

Children's literature

Anything book related

Funny/bizarre

Map cards

Holiday cards

Botanical prints

Scientific stuff

Historical sites or people

Interiors

Anything that you like and want to share

A note about postcards- I love postcards but I only really love the "naked" ones. That means NO envelope. They travel naked through the post. I love the stamp on the card and a message and the way they get a little banged up. I don't want pristine ones in other words. I doubt that I will ever sign up for a swap involving other than naked cards but I just want to make sure that everyone has the same definition.

Comment: Thank you very much for the note and postcards! It is a very generous gift and I appreciate it. I send all my cards also -- I don't collect or save unused ones. Like you, I think they were meant to be written, sent and read. Stay safe and keep well! Richard

Oh I am so glad you were far enough away. I am thankful my in-laws moved away from there after Irma. I don't know if my husband could handle anything happening to them.
