2019 YEAR OF THE PIG

Jan Hodgman sent me a card, a collage with ancient auspicious symbols and an intriguing quote. Jan says she does not know what it means. I think it is like poetry, if you read it aloud a few times you absorb it, or is that an illusion? …

INteractive art from Kathy Barnett

Kathy gives plenty of warning before I open the envelope- Its so cool the way she coordinates the whole package each time.  The birthday cake is a great touch. Of course I took no heed of the clear warnings.  Love the way the…

summer books

I love the variety of cool stuff that shows up in my mail.  This time I received two books on the same day.  They are so cool, so different, and so hard to document: can't slap these babies in the scanner.  Thank you both!  Rani Goel for the book with great tips-in in the pocket and Debra Mulnick for sewn (hand and machine) paper and cloth artwork enclosed in a vintage photo folder.…

Don't like the Catholic Church or my Catholic art? Read this post.

People keep messaging me their thoughts on the Catholic faith, so I am making this a public statement:

I am under obedience from my spiritual director to make my statements with art, not with words; I am not to engage in theological debates.

I will direct you to your local Catholic Church, and to its priest, if you wish to express your grievances concerning Catholicism.

Mail art by IUOMA member Cherub Ayers (Oxford, Ohio, USA)

 

July 8, 2019 - I am thrilled to welcome a rising star in the mail art constellations to my humble blog. At the MinXus-Lynxus blog I have already extended the customary “Howdy,” wink and secret MinXus handshake to a bright-eyed Tenderfoot who is practically a neighbor over yonder in Ohio: Cherub Ayers.

 . . . so I am thinking, Ooh, Blog post, I can keep a journal about what I am up to and all the hows and whys and rambling thoughts but then I look about and see that most people seem to use it only as a 'thank-you card' for what they have received so I am thinking should I bother? Would anyone read it and would it be worth the effort and can I spare the time?  I could restrict the readership I suppose and run on silent mode so to speak but I ask again, why bother?  Perhaps I shall wait and…
