"Hi Sarah, welcome. The only preference I have is for mail artists to send me whatever they're moved to make, whenever they feel like it, and let me be surprised. Freedom! Thanks.   "

Nancy Bell Scott commented on Mary Anne's blog post a brief but pointless rant against the system
"$5? Jeremy, is that a death knell for the postal system in Australia? May many from away send you mail art with 0 expectation/pressure (which I believe in anyway, as imagination + unpredictability of mail art are its essence). "

Dear Nancy:

Thanks you for your response, and we look forward to your donation.  We are going to start an Art Association for our community and want to have kids classes this summer, so the sale of any type of art will help our cause.

Cheers,

Mary J. Grellner
