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, typography and the end pages of books where they explain the typeface; accordions; the smells of gasoline, saw dust, fiberglass resin, gardenias, sweet peas, and honeysuckle. Plague Doctors. Coffee. A bookworm, I'm now exploring poetry.

Comment: Thanks for the cool card featuring the circus performer on horseback, Amy, and for choosing one of those great circus stamps as well. Sadly the wicked mail delivery witch destroyed them with her thick black marker -- but don't get me started...Charming rubber stamp image too :)

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.
