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, Chet Baker, 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. Choco Tacos and It's It. A bookworm, I enjoy literary fiction, sci fi, historical fiction, history, and I'm now exploring poetry.

What a lovely surprise! Thank you so much for those super cute stickies! So cute! I'm hoping my photo of saguaro blossoms image hoping it will show up this time. I seldom have any luck with this. Well, it doesn't show up, but you can see it if you click the link! They are blooming right now. A little later than usual. Again, thank you SO MUCH for the sweet RAK!
