About Me

I'm a teacher of Latin and ancient Greek at a small college. I enjoy:

  • abstract images

  • adaptations of myths & fairy tales

  • art history

  • birds

  • book-binding

  • children's literature

  • cloud-watching

  • etymology

  • found poems, altered text, and other experiments with words

  • kayaking

  • mail-art

  • novels (esp. 19th c. British literature)

  • pamphlets & zines

  • photography

  • postcards

  • signs & symbols

  • trees

  • wildflowers

I hesitate to list any particular dislikes, but here's one: I'd prefer not to receive any images related to hunting, fishing, or eating meat.

Favorite Movies

The Man Who Came to Dinner, Evil Under the Sun, The Women (1939 version), House of Flying Daggers, I Heart Huckabees, Ushpizin, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Stranger than Fiction, About a Boy, Being Julia, They Came Back (Les Revenants), Meek's Cutoff.

Favorite Books

My favorite authors include Anthony Trollope, Wilkie Collins, E.M. Forster, Angela Carter, Charlotte Brontë, and Jane Austen.

Favorite Crafts

Taking photographs; binding books and designing pamphlets; making collages and abstract pieces.

About Swapping

This probably goes without saying, but please let me know if you haven't received something from me when you should have--I haven't dropped the ball so far, and I'd like a chance to re-send if something got lost in the mail. And I promise to rate my partners in a timely way, too.

Comment: That's a crazy amount of flower cutting and I agree! There's no way I would've been that precise either!

Comment: Thank you for these precious works of art. 1 of 2: I love the title you chose: "sprung tune". Description and erasure poem in one, how clever! I also like the combination of booklet and leperello binding and the scrumptious creamy paper. 2 of 2: Another intriguing idea, brilliant! I like R and T best; both are poems in their own right. Thank you for these utterly charming items. You are a true artist.
Response: Thank you so much for these kind words--they made my day! And, of course, I'm so happy you enjoyed the booklets!

Comment: Thanks for the autumn flower postcard! I'm at work, but I think it was a type of orchid, right? or lily? Anyway, of course, I loved it. I reminded me of a photo you'd sent to me a couple of years ago. Thanks, too, for joining in!
Response: Yes, it was a member of the orchid family! One of our neighbors knows a lot about Arkansas wildflowers, and she was really impressed that I came across one. It's the first year either Chris or I had seen them, so I'm wondering if they're fickle bloomers or if we'd just not noticed them before because they are so small and delicate.

Comment: Belated, belated (I thought I was up-to-date with rating, but I am now finding mail that was mislaid by family members) thank you for the whimsical, intricate salad oil art and colorful Jimi Hendrix stamp :) I also wish more products were simultaneously beautiful and functional! Hope you are enjoying the fall <3
