About Me

I'm a teacher of Latin and ancient Greek at a small college. I enjoy:

  • abstract images

  • adaptations of myths & fairy tales

  • art history

  • birds

  • book-binding

  • children's literature

  • cloud-watching

  • etymology

  • found poems, altered text, and other experiments with words

  • kayaking

  • mail-art

  • novels (esp. 19th c. British literature)

  • pamphlets & zines

  • photography

  • postcards

  • signs & symbols

  • trees

  • wildflowers

I hesitate to list any particular dislikes, but here's one: I'd prefer not to receive any images related to hunting, fishing, or eating meat.

Favorite Movies

The Man Who Came to Dinner, Evil Under the Sun, The Women (1939 version), House of Flying Daggers, I Heart Huckabees, Ushpizin, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Stranger than Fiction, About a Boy, Being Julia, They Came Back (Les Revenants), Meek's Cutoff.

Favorite Books

My favorite authors include Anthony Trollope, Wilkie Collins, E.M. Forster, Angela Carter, Charlotte Brontë, and Jane Austen.

Favorite Crafts

Taking photographs; binding books and designing pamphlets; making collages and abstract pieces.

About Swapping

This probably goes without saying, but please let me know if you haven't received something from me when you should have--I haven't dropped the ball so far, and I'd like a chance to re-send if something got lost in the mail. And I promise to rate my partners in a timely way, too.

Comment: Thank you for the lovely photos. I too take pictures of clouds and pretty much anything in Nature. How did you get them printed on post cards? Love that idea and would love to do so with some of mine. Thanks again.
Response: I'm glad you enjoyed the photos! Walgreens printed the photo postcards I sent, but I think they're phasing out that size of card (which is a bummer). I've also tried the photo postcards from Walmart (which can be hit-or-miss on quality) and Moo.com (which are high quality but pricier). I hope that helps!

Your photos for the Your Photo of the Month: October were stunning. Artsy and sturdy! Printing them on the postcard paper was super smart...I might do the same...Loved the experiments. Cheers, Lisa
