My Obsessions

Reading! I've loved reading my whole life. I'm not too picky about books, but I tend to like character-driven books, post-apocalyptic (not sci fi), and non-fiction. Reading has been my favorite thing my entire life. I'm really into short story anthologies at the moment.

Birds! I love my pet birds, my patio is a wild bird haven,and I go on bird walks!

Photography! I just got a Nikon P900, and I love taking photographs of flowers, macros, nature and birds (of course). It's my first non-DSLR camera and I'm loving how easy it is.

Genealogy! I'm obsessed! My people came from England, Ireland, France, Germany and Switzerland.

Embroidery! I love making baby onesies, pillows and tea towels!

Art! I love museums, abstract expressionism, Frank Gehry, Manet, Jackson Pollock, Rothko, still life paintings (especially by the "Dutch Masters"), Chihuly glass, Vermeer, Frank Lloyd Wright

History! I love the Tudor era, Queens (historical English royalty, esp Queen Victoria, Tudor Queens, Queen Charlotte, Marie Antoinette), old cemeteries, documentaries, the Gilded Age (Vanderbilts, Astors, etc)

Eating (but not cooking)! Cheese, cheese Pizza, Sushi, Pad Thai, Eggs Benedict, Gum, Haribo raspberry candy, Indian food, Mashed potatoes, Jelly Bellys. I’ll eat anything that isn’t guts or super spicy.

Gardening! I want a large flower cutting garden. Love dahlias, moss, ferns, streams, glads, tulips, hyacinths, and flowering vines.

Travel! Fav places are: Oregon, Seattle, NYC, East coast leaf peeping, Japan, Paris, London, Italy, Napa, northern California, Costa Rica, New Orleans

Yoga, Mindfulness and Meditation "Nothing ever goes away until it teaches us what we need to know" Pema Chodron

Penpals If you have a lot of similar interests, drop me a letter! I love penpals!

Comment: Cute postcard; thank you! Yes, I love Black Mirror, but it's dark, so it depends if you like a dark series. I would suggest watching the episode "hang the dj" from the newest season. It's my favorite and a 5/5! (and not dark :)
