I teach Latin and ancient Greek at a small college. In my leisure time I enjoy kayaking, reading novels, taking pictures, and sending mail-art.
I'm especially interested in:
19th century British literature
art history, art museums, and art postcards
vintage illustrations of fairies
word art of various sorts (centos, found poems, creative anagrams, etc.)
asemic and abstract art
There's something I enjoy about every color.
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.
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.
For pleasure reading, I usually stick to novels. My favorite authors include Anthony Trollope, Wilkie Collins, E.M. Forster, Angela Carter, Charlotte Brontë, Jane Austen, and Henry James.
Photography, embroidery, basic book-binding, writing and translating (I think they count as crafts), and making mosaics, collages, and abstract designs out of paper scraps.
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.
