About Madeleine...

Dear Postcrossers,
Teaching languages and literature is what I have been doing for some decades in Paris, the place where I live with my husband and close to my son .
History of Ancient civilizations , Ethnology ( rituals and ceremonies) , Literature are my fields of Research and I am very interested in knowing a lot about your country :
its Mythology and legends,
its traditions and customs,
its cultural and artistic heritage ,
its famous women and men in all the fields of Knowledge ( Art, Sciences, Literature , History , Ethnology, Archeology ...)
The feasts ( religious or heathen ) celebrated all the year round in your country and/or in the place you live .
The way of living of your ancestors in the past, things that have disappeared and others that have remained: all those aspects of your country is of great interest for me .
Your personal way of life in your family is quite interesting as well .

Calligraphy and illuminated letters are part of my interests as well.
Palekh illustrations and images of Russian fairy tales .

I somtimes receive postcards showing famous female scientists of the Rachel Ignotofsky collection. I really like them : here are the ones I have already got : Florence Bascom / Elizabeth Blackwell / Dorothy Hodgkin / Cecilia Payne-Gaposchkin / Christiane Nüsslein-Volhard / Katherine Johnson / Wang Zhenyi / Lilian Gilbreth / Rosalind Franklin / Lise Meitner / Alice Bail / Rachel Carson / Vera Rubin .

Merci, Thank you for your future cards . I will feel very grateful to you as they will enrich my knowledge of Humankind and more especially all that is linked with your home country.
Postcrossers in the world , I am looking forward to meeting you and learning more about you .
