Richard Brautigan awaits also.Soon we start ripping out the floor of the computer 'den' at strangulensis Manor.To make a long story short [esp4 those of you who've had the 'pleasure' of reading of this adventure in my responses to y'r mail art] we had an incident of terror in which my Beloved, Shirley, encountered a LARGE blacksnake and responded by shrieking. It'd apparently been stirred up from its basement crawl space residence by handypersons who also found what looks2B great access points to our upstairs.Currently, said 'den' floor is listing to port [east] and soon we will start excavating the 48-yrs of accumulation to make way for…See More

hi Fike, i have received your fab mail...thank you a lot! today i mailed an envelope  for you, hope you get it soon...happy weekend!

Hi Ficus,

Happy Monday to You!

Something Orange is on it's way to you!

Went out today.

  • Happy Friending File! Will look forward to your mailing...happy New year *!*

Oh, you keep sterling records, that's clear from what you sent me. You could send me your Leftwich contents from 2004 if you'd like, though, and not worry anymore about whether you responded. I could reply within, say, the current decade.

That's it! The envelope looks 100% not opened, so you fooled my eyes completely. This we *can* blame on age, for starters. More than once a mail-art envelope turned out (say, a year later) to contain something I'd not realized at first. Love when that happens.

Say, Fike, your fascinating cards+note arrived, thanks a lot. Glad you liked my envelope--but you forgot to open it. Check it out. Asemic! You'll blame the oversight on your age, so I will too. Won't you post your Picasso? N.B.

I suppose intuition feels closer to what I was expressing.

Thank you. Admittedly, I'm not at all familiar with recent research. I suppose it would be quite the cognitive feat to describe wordless thought in words. I didn't intend to attempt that...but I do wonder (fantasize even) how humans could experience it's existence in a concrete way. I don't know.

If you like to use old US postage on your mail art envelopes...

Posted on October 4, 2014 at 5:01pm 0 Comments

Karl Anderson's a good source who I've used for several orders over the past few years.

His current list and very detailed information on requirements for ordering from him are found at:

http://www.andersonstampandcoin.com/Pricelist.pdf

Currently, he is selling mint US 3-cent stamps from the 1940's-50's for very little over face value.

Y'r Ol' Bud,     Fike

So you like fractals, eh?
