Poems from Richard C. -- and strange coincidences (or ARE they?)

So, just HOW did Richard know the postal service was going to "enhance" his poem, which reads "I'd stop trying to read this if I were you)." How did he know that it would be torn right through the words "stop" and "if"? Coincidence?

Then, ON THE DAY I GET CALLED FOR JURY DUTY, I receive this:…

In the Pink from Fleur

Wow, what soft pretty stripes--I really enjoy Fleur's wallpaper series. And she also sent me a fabulous bit of Oakland mosaic art she says is on a square trashcan at "The Cook and Her Farmer" there. Plus, a sweet little piece of wall art. Who knew Oakland was so full of art? Thanks Fleur!…

Lynne Gurnee's Beautiful collage and an A&P Boekie

Lynne says this collage is made from two Picasso prints and some Japanese flowering cherry paper. I think it's peaceful and lovely. She also passed along an A&P boekie, and I'll show you a few pages from that....…

Big Batch of Goodies and a Beautiful Collage from Gretchen Brautigan

This is a hilarious collage from Gretchen--on the back it says "It all started with the stamp." I don't know if these two guys with the Hellmann's and the MiracleWhip are really the Mayo doctors but I love to think so. Great background paint, too. And then,…

MomKat's Trashpo Boekie

Here's a Greek Dada Trashpo boekie MomKat started -- then I think it came to me and Heleen, then back to Mom, then finally to me. I don't think we can fit any more stuff on or it it, so it and all its lovely "omens" are staying in Oregon at least for a while. I…

Gail Anderson's "Do Not Demand"

What a great image, the poor soul with a huge goose hanging around his neck! And Gail says the "Do not demand" is from a fortune cookie. Wise advice! Maybe ignored by the poor schlump with the goose! Thanks Gail! And, we re-used the much worn envelope once…

Chris Wells' Beautiful Vispo

Wow, I can't even count the ways I love this piece. The torn and "aged" painted paper is beautiful. I love all the bits of language around the edges, and then the central image is just fantastic. It's hard to keep the mind from "filling in the blanks"--I immediately think "back of beyond" but it's so much better than that. Thanks Chris and Faint Press. A red letter mail art…
