Hi, I am Anja, * May 1977, from Werder, Germany which is next to Potsdam and close to Berlin. I was born in Potsdam, which is known for its parks and gardens. I am not actively into organized swapping since a long time anymore due to our huge garden keeping me busy and a full-filling job but once in a while it is fun, and I do not want to miss this.
I write letters and cards since I was 8 years old and I love to exchange goodies with friends via mail though. I love swaps and always send out in time. I do swap things via Yahoo and Facebook groups for years now but also not as often as I used to. I love colourful mail since I was a child.
Sadly I lack time to join often but I blend in whenever times allows it.
ebm, industrial, dark techno, electro, gothic, dark wave, indie, rock, new rock, metal, folk, medieval...
I love books, so I will list a very few authors whose books I like. - Kai Meyer, Ben Aaronovich, Jasper Fforde, Sergej Lukianenko, Carlos Castaneda, Paulo Coelho, Wladimir Megre, Christoph Marzi, Neil Gaiman, E.T.A. Hoffmann, E.A. Poe, Sebastian Fitzek, Andreas Eschbach, Charlotte Link, Oscar Wilde, Jussi Adler-Olsen... Books are magical and tend to be good friends for me.
Lord of the rings, Avatar, The fountain, Star Wars, PI, The Science of sleep, Cube, Minority report, Paycheck, A scanner darkly, Austin Powers, What dreams may come, Stardust, Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind, Harry Potter, Charlie and the chocolate factory, The constant gardener, Sleepy Hollow, Arizona Dream, Thank you for smoking, Dead man, Powder, Big Fish, Corpse Bride, the Alien movies, Prometheus,...
Game of thrones, Star Trek (old and new), The Walking Dead, Fargo, Black Mirror, Electric Dreams, Doctor Who, South Park, Grimm, Vikings, Dirk Gently, American Gods, American Horror Story, Hanibal, Star Gate, Umbrella Academy, The Preacher, ...

colourful mail, letters, slams, music, movies, long walks outdoors, photography, gardening, nature, permaculture, cooking, shamanism, stones, the elements, elves, angels, fairies, magic, gardens, parks, animals, flowers, trees, herbs, tea, coffee, jewellry, Dawanda, lovely stationeries, paint, colours, the world in general, the beauty in even the smallest things, reading, books, poetry, painting, drawing, crafts, spirituality, weird humour, gothic, spooky things,...
I love quite a lot of things:
I am not into cute characters.
I always send out my swaps but this year there is a lot of mail losses happening and I already felt like giving up my beloved mail hobbies. So please send me a message if you did not receive anything from me and we will figure out what to do next (waiting or resending). I swap since the 1990ies, and I started to write letters in the 1980ies, so I know that business.

~*~ "A human being is a part of a whole, called by us _universe_, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest... a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness.

Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty." (Albert Einstein)
