Why I am involved in Mail-Art:
To send off surprises is a joyful activity. To receive is an inspiration. Usually the pieces are created in a flow, with a finite time period for obsessing over it, resulting in work from the uncalculating muse. Every once in a while a piece will get deeper treatment... as appropriate.

oh, no, mara. while 20 miles to the east of me there is no home mail delivery, the mail carrier comes to my box daily. i would like the piece to have special handling though, and for that, it needs to be carried to the post office in person. small town post office, they LIKE it when i show up with mail art. makes their day, in fact.

thanks for looking for it mara. i have been too sick to get out to the post office and mail it off. i'm feeling much better today, however, and should be able to go out either tomorrow or friday. will give a holler when i can get it mailed. it should only take a day or two to arrive from northern arizona. being sick sucks...

Area, region, stall, area, place of belonging, residence, may be given endless definitions of where one chooses to be, by place of birth, which spends much of life, gestate emotions, situations, feelings, making we like being there.
It is possible that we move for various reasons, which makes us to stop taking it in another physical space and its place in the World.
Or that our place in the world a small space like a room, house or a landscape.
One and only one set and choose where to belong. Where he expresses his wishes, his family or weapon projects.
So we always have "our place in the World, by choice or fate or whoever that knows things, we were up there. Wherever we say "this is my place in the world"
