Hello, my name is Pat
I am a retired secondary school teacher, spending the last 12 years of my profession working with at-risk students in mathematics and sciences in Orlando, Florida. 📐📏📝
I have also worked at the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World. That was a fun job 🎠. I have Florida 🎇🎆Disney postcards for anyone interested.
My passion in life is READING. 📖📑📕📚📓📑📖 Favorite authors - too many to list but some are: Dr. Seuss, Koontz, Steinbeck, Michener, Hemingway, Camus, Dostoyevsky, Dante, Poe, Lewis Carroll, Heinlein, Emily Dickinson, Sylvia Plath, Oliver Sacks, Shakespeare, etc.
Favorite artists 🎨 too many to list but some are: Dali, Picasso, Michelangelo, van Gogh, Monet, Klimt, Munch, Escher, Rembrandt, etc.
I enjoy walking 🏃 everyday, being outside in nature 🌲🌴🌵🌹🍀🍁, hiking 🎿 out in the West US. I also practice meditation (SITTING) everyday. I am a vegetarian Buddhist.
I am a lifetime learner, and I love to read about other countries, cultures, religions, customs, biographies of famous and infamous people. There is so much more to learn - maybe I can learn from Postcrossing. 🌎🌏🌍
I am NOT picky about the postcard you send me. 📭 Each one is special to me. If you need an idea of what I really enjoy receiving:
- Anything to do with nature: geology, plants, animals, unusual mountain, ocean, land sites, rivers, waterfalls, rain forests, etc.
- All different religious/cultural structures, idols, statues, places or items of worship
- famous buildings of your country
- books, reading, famous libraries
- quotes, with translation ("It's nice to be important, but it is more important to be nice." - John Templeton)
- mental health awareness in your country
Thank you for reading this long profile
Have a most wonderful day, Pat
