I just found out that one of my longtime correspondents, Frank Osowski, died May 7th. He lived in Australia with his partner, Leonie. She sent me word of the news, which I got upon my return from Chicago. Frank and his partner went by "F 'n' L Osowski" for their artistic collaborations. I had been exchanging mail art with them since my years in Tucson. They featured my mailings in a number of exhibitions in Australia, including related to the Midsumma event. I always enjoyed the brainy quality of their work. Their mail has always kept me from feeling lonely. I always felt their work offered great insights into the structure of ideas. RIP, Frank Osowski.

Mail art condolences may be sent to:
