GOTIJ "ETHER" from Marie Wintzer in Japan

Yes, today, Tuesday was a GOOD Mail Art Day at Glinou 20!

Rainbow Vispo from John M. Bennett...and blue too!

A great package of vispo boekies and other art from John M. Bennett arrived in Greece on Tuesday

but I am finally able to blog today. One wants to take time to "read" and view the art of JMB, slowly and carefully.
