About Me

Hello! I'm a teacher that lives in a large cultural and historical city, but I've also spent a lot of time in the country. I enjoy having the best of both worlds. I've been an avid letter writer with pen pals for more than 40 years. I enjoy exchanging long, conversational style letters with questions and dialogue and becoming real friends. A long letter to me is about 8+ pages handwritten or 4 pages typed. I also enjoy exchanging cards for the holidays and birthdays.

I like nature photography and traveling the backroads to small towns to see something new, reading and discussing books, movies, 80s music, animals (dogs, foxes, wolves, hawks, owls, llamas), pets (2 rescue dogs) history, science, culture, gardening, mysteries, ghost stories and the unexplained, abandoned places, historical places, natural health, crafting, traveling, walking in the woods, spending time in deserts and the ocean, storms, relaxation, museums, galleries, murals, cafes, iced dirty horchatas, true crime stories and much more. I enjoy staying young and active, visiting places and attending events around my city.

If you don't receive something from me in a swap, let me know, and I will be happy to re-send.

I always rate as soon as I receive a swap, so if I haven't rated you, it's because your swap has not arrived.

My main love is letter writing and friendship, and I am open to writing those that are also long letter lovers and share some of my interests. Contact me if interested.


Comment: I just got your letter today. (Goodness the mail is so slow!) So nice to hear from you. I always feel that most of the Susan's and Suzy's I meet are a little bit older than we are - like my mom was on the end of a trend. Though I did always have another Susan in my classes growing up. Maybe our name will come back in style one day. I'll write back soon!

Comment: Thanks for the adorable witch cat card and the stickers! I love being an English professor, but I don't always correct grammar outside of papers :) I bought a glitter bat headband to wear for Halloween. Going to wear it to class the couple of days before Halloween!

Greetings from Singapore!

My name is Jan and I am your partner for the "easy comment" swap! I hope you are doing great! I feel like I am writing to you in your "future" here cause well its Monday and I am experiencing the sunny sun shining brightly in the middle of the afternoon here! Haha!

Firstly... WOW! You actually write 6 - 7 pages to your penpal? That is pretty nice! I mean in a "modern" day like this, no one bothers to hand-write letters anymore... let alone greeting cards and even Postcards! I actually find it hard to find touristy PCs from my country but when I do, I'll buy a lot! I love that we can actually interact with someone who has the same interest as us from all around the worrrrld! That is interesting to me! And I am sure for you too! Do you happen to have a penpal from Singapore though? Or somewhere in Asia? Also, if I can ask you... do you meet up with your penpals in person? Just thought I'd ask, cause it seems intriguing.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Regards, Jan (: (from your "future").

Happy Swapping!

OOPS! Sorry about that last one! I didn't realize how big it would turn out. (I'm still new to this.) Let me try that again.

alexismargo on Mar 19, 2015:

Hi! I really like that you put time and effort into your letters- 8 pages is pretty long. I write really tiny so that would take me forever! You must have some lucky pen pals :)

Happy St. Patrick's day!
