People call me Jena or Red. I'm a writer who frequently flitters back and forth between Los Angeles and San Francisco.
It's been quite an adventure the last couple of years. There's been quite a bit of tragedy but there has also been some bittersweet and beautiful. You can read more about it in my blog LGBC linked above.
That said, here are my requests:
*I could use your loving support in the form of one phrase on cards sent to me: #SaveJonas
This would be amazing!*
Please send me your (uploaded photo) card dated, stamped (please not the barcode stamps if possible) (Braille stamps are awesome too), and handwritten.
I want to learn what life is on your end of the world & what makes you tick. Please tell me something that inspires you & why. Tell me something silly. Tell me a secret. Give me directions to your favorite place. Give me your book recommendations & quotes. Write me a poem, story or haiku. I would love for you to teach me something in a different language. Cocktail or dessert recipes are nifty too.
I'm immensely interested in art, science, and all things both whimsical and unusual and thus, would love for you to send me the following cards (the higher up on the list it is, generally is the more desirable it is to me):
- Scientific, philosophical diagrams. Anything about taxidermy, dissection or internal anatomy of animals, plants, insects, and fossils.
