super glad you're not dead DVS--welcome back! DKult went on lockdown this entire time. We were just on the brink of cannibalism when you re-surfaced.  We are all like the 130+ Musketeers: all for one and one for all -the one mind-the nothing and the something. we have some new members on FB. one is a friend of mine who doesn't know a thing about trashpo. I think she was just in the mood to join a kult so that's cool. we are clearly infiltrating and DVS==I hope you were able to distribute quite a few pamphlets on your cough 'vacation'.  I know KDJ did on her 'vacation' too

Nope, Diane, I cannot get in without joining in. I think public means all in facebook as opposed only your facebook friends. I cannot join out of fear of being found out by a host of silly relatives who will expect me to tell them what I  had for lunch and that level of sparkling conversation, not the superior intellectual discussions we have here. But I shall ask my daughter to go and show me.

And I haven't got time, I have cracked the way to make the trashpo/Dkult font and need to work lots. I am having the time of my life.

Comment by Mail Art Martha yesterday

Thanks DVS for taking time off to put me right, nice to hear from you, however briefly. I think I shall send it to an almost trashpoet I know who needs a little push, after letting the cow to roam a field for a while to get trashy.
