Why I am involved in Mail-Art:
Initially pure folly. Nowadays I visit the IUOMA practically everyday as if it were a part of the oatmeal routine.

03.20.11 Dare Ruud Janssen, Obviously (I suppose), I have no website here--just  random stacks of those cardboard boxes  (& seldom (if ever) do I utilize the email address). My admission into your fold is a result of that "ning" thing (plus your generosity) & the only way that I could find to continue participating in your Marvelous & Grand Service --the I.U.O.M.A. Thank you. I am (& have long been) appreciative  of your prophetic & thoughtful insight toward the phenomenon of correspondence art ("mail art")-----was it John Evans that first used that term?  In any event, I find the IUOMA to be a  joyous & convenient  source for checking in on the "state of the art." Of course, I am always interested  in the mail but I am not seeking more ,more, more --- I already owe a thousand postcards & letters (things are kinda winding down here). Also, it is not likely that I will be posting a photo (or photos). That stock image of a "stump", "block of wood","chip off the old block" seems to work just fine. All best to you & yours & the IUOMA! Richard Canard

!2.02.14  Today I received a postcard from Ms. Angie Cope that reads:....... "I think IUOMA is a metaphor for life.  Wait--maybe not--But when I go there I feel like everything I see and read is so cool but is just the tip of the iceberg. So many blogs and comments buried--waiting to be discovered...rediscovered."..... Now, isn't that a terrific valentine for Ruud Janssen & all of us here at the IUOMA???

08.02.14 Dare USPS & the IUOMA,  I understand that it's been half a century now (Yesterday)  since "The Beatles" first discovered America...& I can't tell you exactly what followed but I do know that I was not the only one  responsible.... Anyway, late at night (after I turn out the light) I am perfectly willing to admit that part of the blame is mine.  .....the walrus, richard canard

Dear Richard C.  When I post a letter and there isn't enough postage on it, I get a message from the postal office and can actually see the proof: a scan of the letter. When they are right, I have to pay the postage due. In mail-art cases sometimes the computer is wrong, ans the scan proves the postage was correct. So the digitizing of our mail-art in the Netherlands is already done and I do get glances of it now and then. The postal office just loves to scan our mail and see if we pay the fee......

Richard...I came into a box of mail-art from the Winston Salem show in 1979. Can you give me any information about this show, or point me in the right direction? My goal is to share all of the art and I want a little backstory to go along with it. Thanks guy!

16.11.14 Dare Mister Shab Levy, ...& thanks for your response... & again I repeat: I have never sent anything to Ms. Koshgarian  & as you say, it was "a general remark"...which of course was my point....(I placed myself right in the meddling middle).Please understand that there are no problems here as far as I'm concerned...I am naught but a clown  & seriously interested in bad jokes  & "shabby" art. I did manage to check out your website, however ( & what a stark contrast  we are). You sir, are obviously a disciplined, technically skilled  & accomplished artist. I also enjoyed viewing your comprehensive visual Art History Section (a few new inserts for me but was also surprised not to see any reference to Joseph Cornell or Ray Johnson...(but then, you did make it clear that it was incomplete). & as far as your viewing my own so-called "creations" on the web are concerned-- I must confess that  I can barely use the electronic mouse & have no website....but most artists & quasi-serious mail artists can usually be found fairly easily. Sinsneerly, Richard Canard

Dear Mr. Canard,

I know Karen from an art-book group that we belonged to and I am sure that she wasn't commenting on your creativity or quality of work, rather as a general remark. Please let me know where I can see some of your creations on the web.

Thanks for the delightful card. To me it looked like a fish eating a big mouthful of spaghetti. I am pleased to have inspired you.

Richard, thank you ten fold for the lovely postcard you sent. It's simplicity speaks volumes and I'm glad you used my favorite quote too. I will be glad to send something special in return. Until then, all best.
