Swap Notes

I enjoy swapping with people from around the world. I understand that the mail systems can have flaws and things may not arrive to their destination. I pledge to reach out more than once before rating a 1 or a 3. I would really appreciate the same courtesy. I am a new swapper, been flaked 10% of my swaps and angeled only once. . . (Thank you Villemo!) so I understand the disappointment of spending time on a swap and knowing someone seemingly did nothing.

I often include extras that are profile based, not for the hearts (I do appreciate them though!) but because I have so much stuff to share and would like to bring a smile to people's faces. That said, please rate your swap. (I always will) It helps me continue to improve what I send out, and lets me know you received my envelope.

TLDR - please contact me before giving me a bad rating for anything.

Comment: Thank you for the weird and wonderful postcard of Io and for the circus stamp - so thoughtful! It's cold but typical for my area of California, sunny and 58 F today. My favorite Keith Jarret also is the Koln Concert. With a lot of practice I can play the main theme, and now that I think about it, it's one of my favorite pieces of music, ever.
