Richard C's poems & my responses

When I started doing this mail-art thing a few months ago (!) I had the great good luck to become a correspondancer with Richard C. He has written a number of poems on plain white postcards and sent them to me. He said he wanted to exchange poems with me, so I, being completely ignorant of how illustrious Richard C is, decided I would turn his poems into collaborations. Since he keeps sending me poems, I have to believe he doesn't mind too much. Here's one I added to his "...a tearible…

"Clock, Crow" from Heleen de Vaan

Constantly Amazed

Just have to say I am constantly amazed by the creativity and insane talent shown by so many IUOMA folks! Checking the recent blog posts with art from Meeah, Stripygoose, Marie, Carina. Wow. Just wow. And Fast Eyes and Grethe and Minneapolis Gnome. Amy Irwen. Now I'm in one of those Academy Award loops where if I forget to mention anyone they're going to be insulted. Well, don't be. I'm in awe of everyone of you! Richard C., that means you. You all are keeping the light burning in my little…
