I have been a letter-writer since I could hold a pencil. I love decorating my mail, and I always thought of myself as someone who just liked to make things look interesting and unusual in the mailbox. For years I was hesitant to call myself a Mail Artist - I mean, heck, am I really an Artist? - but the book Good Mail Day convinced me otherwise. I love the underground, revolutionary spirit of mail art, and when it all comes down to it, I just love to send and receive interesting and different-looking mail. Or just eye-catching. Or weird. Or wonderful.

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.
