About Susan...

I live with Shirley, my spouse (legally married in March 2014, after 35 years. And now we finally have marriage equality throughout the USA). Our home is in the Appalachian mountains in south central Pennsylvania near the famous little town of Gettysburg, where I was born and raised.

I am retired from my job (was a lawyer who did continuing legal education), and now I am a Gettysburg Licensed Town Historian, giving people walking tours of my famous little home town. I'm also training to become a Pennsylvania Master Naturalist volunteer, and gave my first nature walk in November 2017.
I love to:
--play with my grandkids and my friends
--fly downhill at a high rate of speed: on skis in winter and on my bike the rest of the year.
My interests include photography and graphic design.
I enjoy all postcards, especially reading something about you and the place where you live.
I would especially appreciate cards featuring:
--holidays in season: your own national holidays, or non-religious Christmas or springtime cards, for instance, especially antique or unusual ones, or holidays unique to your (non-United States) culture
--Inge Löök's "Aunties"--old women
--unique/unusual photos of where you live
--goddesses of your culture or elsewhere in the world, in history, and in prehistory
I would LOVE Frau Holle or Baba Yaga or Mazu (Ma-Tzu, from Taiwan and elsewhere in southeast Asia).
--monumental/heroic women
--nature close-ups (mushrooms, moss, lichen, ferns, flowers....)
--vintage/retro tourist card
--progressive politics
--the world's peoples
--Japanese Gotochi card (only if you can afford the extra expense)
--beautiful or striking designs
--shaped cards
--maximum cards (just learned what they when I looked it up after seeing them mentioned on a postcrosser's profile)
If your country has a postcrossing STAMP I'd love to see it on a postcard from you.
