About Me

I enjoy connecting to people around the globe through the postal system and mail art. I collect postage stamps, bus and train tickets, and other ephemeral bits of everyday life.

I should spend more time outside, so I'm off to swim, or just float and watch the clouds. (gif by L. Boglio)

Favorite Music

Some favorite artists: Miriam Makeba, Keith Jarrett, Chopin, Dave Brubeck Thank You, Bill Evans, Bach, Baguette Quartette, Rupa and the April Fishes, Beethoven, Tango No. 9, Vince Guaraldi, Andres Segovia, Allman Brothers, Camille, Sanjay Divecha, Lyle Lovett, Decemberists, Jessica Fichot

Some things I like

The circus, magic, and parades; Carnival; gypsy/bohemian style and steampunk; Commedia dell'arte; court jesters; Cirque du Soleil; Pierrot and Pierette; Totoro; the Ministry of Silly Walks; old ledger pages; kraft and handmade paper; Instax, logarithmic spirals; travel, maps, and aerogrammes; line engraved postage stamps and woodcuts; galaxies and gardens; linen; zines; typewriters and writing letters, typography and the end pages of books where they explain the typeface; playing piano and accordions; the smells of gasoline, saw dust, fiberglass resin, gardenias, sweet peas, and honeysuckle. Plague Doctors. Coffee. A bookworm, I enjoy literary fiction, sci fi, historical fiction, history, and I'm now exploring poetry.

Comment: Love it all! Great envelope with the bunny and matching stamps! Love the ATC with the clear Dymo labels! You definitely waited too long to use them! My neighbour was with me when I opened the envelope and we both noticed and loved the clear labels. Great font too. I know you got the labels ages ago but I’d love to know the font of the Dymo! Such pretty colours too. Love pink for fall (the deer made me think fall) Thank you so much.

Comment: absolutely gorgeous postcard and I love the bunny shadow pupped stamp! I've been working hard to create peaceful spaces in my home (redecorated my front porch to make a reading nook and bought a bunch of house plants for my work-from-home corner of the kitchen table). I hope you are finding peaceful spaces too!

Comment: I'm so glad you joined this swap and shared your own carved stamped images. They're fantastic! You sent so many, lucky me! And I like all the different papers and inks you used and your cool envie too. They will all be used. Can't wait to play! Enjoy those blue skies. We too had some blue skies today but Autumn has definitely arrived. Thanks again for such a lovely swap!

Comment: Very cool B&W pictures. I don't have any Lyle Lovett in my record collection...he has a unique sound and I am not sure there is anyone else quite like him :)

Comment: Thanks for playing! Congrats on cleaning the garage! I helped my sister move from the house she lived in for 58 years. That was a lot of cleaning and cleaning out! My daughter also just moved from one town in Virginia to another and we helped her with that - again, lots of cleaning. I'm taking this week off! LOL

I wanted to let you know that I love the B&W polaroids that you sent...3 instead of just 2!! I didn't know B&W film was available; I think I like it better than color. Thanks again!! -- PenPaperPostage

Sorry, got lost trying to find the Temple of Small Gods the other night! Welcome to Ankh-Morpork. There be dragons here, but they are mostly harmless, at least according to Lady Sybil.

Thanks for the glittery Emma Peel ATC for the MMH tag! It is the second bit of glittery mail I received today and I am most pleased. ^_^
