Several weeks ago, mail I attempted to send to Richard Baudet was delivered to me, because apparently the post office confused the return address for the destination (though they were clearly labeled "to:" and "from:").  I re-addressed the mail, this time making the destination address more prominent.  A couple of weeks later, it arrived again in my mailbox.  I put it aside for awhile, but think I will put a new address label on it and try to send it again in the next day or so.  I almost hope that it will return to me...I am beginning to think of this as performance art, rather than mail art.

How wonderful...performance art!! When I took my boomerang mail to the postal clerk , he said I had to obliterate the line coding( very faint lines / or place in a new envelope with the To address the darkest ink).Hopefully dear Richard will get your letter one day♥
