Welcome to my profile - I am Tracy, a social worker, who just left office life in exchange for foster parenting on a small farm just 10 minutes drive from the city center. Love it!! I have 4 goats, a lamb, a donkey, 2 dogs and chickens. We have wild life cruising through the property and co-exist fairly well. I have a project list a mile long and have 2 homeless youth helping out with some of the labour. If the snow doesn’t fly too soon this year, I hope to demolish my side deck which sits over a deep crevice and rebuild the area in a more whimsical way, maybe lay some masonry in the clay.
Things that energize me:
visual arts!! , kindness, architecture, ATC’s, antiques, drawings, printmaking, outdoors, quirky things, nature, travel (wide and far), spice! cooking, tea, snacks, food security, beer coasters from your area, community development, birds, mammals, social innovation, anything “Griffin,” history, literary fiction, linguistics, mental health, Fabio, hair metal bands, museums. I don’t get offended so feel free to send edgy stuff or nudes.
I should build on TRAVEL: I have become addicted to getting away (not sure what that says about my psyche) since my first independent travel to Guatemala when I was 25. In those days, travel was much different without internet, smart phones or Trip Advisor. Since then, I have accumulated a lot of little star stickers that I adhere to my globe when I hit a new destination. Favorites have included Greenland, Japan, Varanasi, Iceland, Venezuela, Turkey and the Channel Islands.
Wish List: Postcards - I like whacky ones, downtown innovation, vintage/antique, black and white, artsy, poetry, free cards, historic, famous people, galleries, etc Stereographs - collect these💗 ATCs Knorr and other instant soup packets Tea Socks Penpal letters - always interested in your hobby stuff, personality flaws, travels. Vintage or antique anything Old portraits. Seeds Real feathers found in nature Teeth, skulls Bookmarks Stationery Earrings - gawdy! Return address labels. Postage stamps - new or used Coins Low denomination paper money Ephemera
I don't care for cutesy/girlie things, child reward stickers or “manufactured-type” scrapbooking stuff. I am not religious but don’t mind religious symbols.
The best things I have ever received through swap-bot swaps are: a petrified clam, a feather from a great horned owl, ATC’s, foreign coins, an Egyptian bookmark, quills, a hand-made anti-racism booklet with illustrations. Thank-you!!!!
