"Wonderful lady! So delicate; it reminds me a bit of the figures by the surrealist Max Ernst, who collaged a fictional fantastic story called " the woman with the hundred heads"! Best creative wishes! Charlotte"

Charlotte,

I am glad you like the Moticos. I might start a new series later this year. As for Vostell, some years ago I purchased a book documenting his art, "Automobile", in German and English. Today (Wednesday) I shall send you some mail art inspired by Vostell that I am sure you will enjoy.

Best wishes for your exhibition!

Charlotte,

To answer your question about Olympia: Our city of about 60,000 residents is one of three cities (the others being Tumwater to the south and Lacey to the east) that comprise an urban area of about 120,000 people on the southern edge of the Seattle metropolitan area. Olympia is the capital of the state of Washington and has the State Capitol building and about half the state offices, the others being in the other two cities. State government and a state college are the biggest employers, we have little industry here so growth is slower than in the rest of the metropolitan area and less expensive to live, though housing prices have increased over the last 5 years. Farmland and forest are only 15 minutes away to the south and west of us. A large military base to the north separates us from the main metropolitan area. We are a 2-hour drive and 130 miles from Portland, Oregon to the south, but the travel time is the same or longer (in the afternoon/evening 3-4 hours) to Seattle north of us even though it is only 70 miles away from Olympia - the traffic is terrible on the only freeway I-5 and the public transportation options are inadequate. (I lived in Seattle for 35 years) However, we like living in Olympia as the cultural center and are only 9 minutes away by car or bus from the center of the city.

Charlotte,

Sunny weather? Ha! Here in Cascadia we are nearing the end of Stormy Season. In January we had 28 consecutive days with rain, equaling a record. But this past Sunday and Monday were finally sunny and the days are a little longer now. Our spring is said to begin by the fourth week in February when the major storms are past. All this is compensation for the nearly complete lack of rain and long days from June through mid-September, sometimes into October. In case you are wondering, Cascadia is the name of our bioregion taken from the volcanic Cascade Mountain Range that is a north-south spine from Canada to California.

The moticos and Coffee Clutch are on their way to you. More in the mail soon.

Hi Charlotte,

I will send you some moticos in today's (Thursday's) outgoing mail, along with a copy of the Cascadia Coffee Clutch, a satirical parody of a free publication called "Coffee News" distributed at our local restaurants (and also doctors' waiting rooms!).

More in the mail this spring!

Hi Charlotte,

German was the language I took in high school and college classes. I was glad to be able to speak basic German on trips to eastern Europe (specifically, Hungary and Poland) where few people knew any English. However, I never was able to understand the German dialect spoken in southern Switzerland in spite of taking a class prior to a trip there in the 1980's!

Sometimes I prepare mail art in German for Torma Cauli in Hungary. My main interest is artistamps in addition to creating postcards, zines, occasional collages, and faux currency called moticos. Would you like a set of moticos?

I look forward to your mail!

I there!!! Happy New Year to you too! I am sorry you were so sick, but happy you are better. Take care, keep warm, and 'art your heart away'! (My kinders use to to tell me that when I taught art, "we are arting our hearts!"-Kathy
