"Isn't this frustrating? My mail art greetings were so slow reaching family and friends in the USA. I did send most out by Nov.25, but they are just arriving this week! Real snail mail! Thank you, Gwen, for letting me know that it arrived, and…"
"That is great news, Fike! Woohoo! Keep up the good work and thanks for letting me know. And no worries, the round of mail I just sent out is my first since about March. Turns out I can't garden and do mail art at the same time, forget about…"
These are my people, and making stuff is what I do: currently letterpress printing and fauxstage stamps. I am so lucky to have a perforator! Proprietor of Audax Press.
Disclaimer: I am unironically "woke." If you send me something that I think is racist or sexist or exploitative or dehumanizing, there's a better than 50:50 chance that I will say so (I hope); this does NOT mean I think you are a bad person! It does mean I think you have probably led a sheltered life and need to get out more. Consider how your words and actions affect others, especially those with less power and status than you, ESPECIALLY those who are in physical danger due to being who they are. Not remaining silent when faced with unconscious disrespect of others, or worse yet, conscious disrespect, is a charge put upon me that I may not deny. Silence is violence. I'm guilty too. No one's perfect, but we must try to do better. And we must succeed. Sorry, not sorry.
My Mail-Adress (snail and/or E-mail)
Taking down my address temporarily, since I need a little time to get caught up!
Dear Gwendolyn. just gotcher sending , and since I'm so far behind in responding will say here that after about 16 chemos I'm CANCER FREE by PET scan but will have to do chemo for life [which I see as two ways of looking at chemo]. Side effects keeping me 'busy' but, heck[!] consider the alternative.
Will respond in actually snailmail but am about 2-mo behind.
