Why I am involved in Mail-Art:
a friend of mine who exchanged art showed me some cool thigs; i found some kindly strangers' addresses and sent them queer little postcards i had made. some people liked them and sent me things back. also more addresses. so i made more peculiar postcards and sent them to creative strangers,. also envelopes full of wonderful paper things and the odd package containibg weird and beautiful shit. it was a lot of fun for a long time, then i stopped for a while. now i want to create cool things to mail to other people again and fill my mailbox with fine and curious things. so i am starting up again.

It's saturday afternoon, and I'd like to thank all you lovely artistes who hollered back with help and encouragement when i sent out my li'l S.O.S.off the wall and on the blog the other day. Our Internet service where we live is not always entirely at its best, like recently, and i've got a streak of indolence in my makeup that's a mile wide, so sometimes  it takes me a little longer than we like, to respond to messages--but please do be in touch, 'k?.

THIS ISN'T MEANT AS A GRIPE OR COMPLAINT!but i'm feeling somewhat overwhelmed and confused by the site. there's so much here for me to take in and figure out. i do not know where to post messages like this one so that the wider IUOMA can see them-- here, on this page? on *my* page?  is it preferable to frame my messaging as a blog post or in the discussion forum?



where and when and how to introduce myself further -- i ain't sure, do folks read each…

Earthling, this may be the last but certainly it´s not the least welcome message to IUOMA you are going to receive. I’m a celestial mail artist living in a heavenly corner of the faraway universe called Republik van Patland. I´d love to be the other end if you wish to trade mail art with a celestial mail artist. If this is the case at the time your envelope should read as follows:

The Celestial Scribe
Terrene Embassy
Republik van Patland
Caixa Postal 24827
Curitiba-PR
80510-970
Brazil

I look forward to see a piece of yours in my terrene mailbox. I´ll do my homework after receiving your artwork. This is nothing less than a Celestial Promise. I’m Patricio, Celestial Scribe & Republik van Patland Official Envelope Provider.
