 The gap  Knoxville-Curitiba is being bridged beautifully.  Your brick is "celestial".   It´s time for this scribe to keep a celestial promise made to you early this month.  I´ll keep you posted.

Caly: what do you mean by  "Sent you a message. 8-)"?

Thanks Caly.  I would like to tell Gin that I received her artwork but since her name is not listed in IUOMA I can´t.  That´s the whole story.  Any idea on how to contact her? 

At 6:36pm on August 13, 2013, Patricio - The Celestial Scribe said…

Caly: I received an artwork from someone under the AKA name of "Gin!" from Knoxwille, TN  who isn´t listed in the IUOMA members list.  It´s a woman.  Dou you know her?

Hi Caly, I DID get your mail art.  THANK YOU.  I have posted it here:

I tend not to comment on my memories.  Those get shown in the pop up shows.

Yours arrived in that space between finishing off in England and traveling to America for my annual family meet up.  I couldn't fit scanning and posting in before I left so I carried it with me, not even sure if it would take me over the limit at the airport scales!

I post everything I receive at one of my two blogs and when I have time I link them here and put up photos, but you can imagine how life can take over. .. days are pretty crowded!

I will send you something back sometime.  I copied down addresses of some of the new people I've received from before I left - not everyone is on IUOMA  and when something I make feels like it belongs in their mailbox, they'll get something. I have my regulars, like everyone!

See you in the mail.

Earthling, this is the last but certainly not the least welcome message to IUOMA you receive. I’m a celestial mail artist living in a heavenly corner of the faraway universe called Republik van Patland. When you joined IUOMA on July 5  I was unable to welcome you on board.  At the time I was in a celestial journey far beyond the Milky Way. Now, back to planet Earth, I´d love to be the other end when you decide it’s the right time to start trading snail mail art. If this is the case at the time your envelope should read as follows:

The Celestial Scribe

Terrene Embassy

The Celestial Republik van Patland

Caixa Postal 24827




II look forward to see a piece of yours in our terrene mailbox. I will do my homework after receiving yours. This is a celestial promise. I’m Patricio, Celestial Scribe & Republik van Patland official envelope provider.

Love love love the fortune cookie! Wu Wei is one of my mottos and it has worked well for me - except when I forget to do it, I mean NOT do it. I will keep in mind that you are a person who likes all things Chinese. Best to you.
