Wow friends?  I never thought you would ask, but now let's not rush things.  What if you do not like my barcodes?  What if my Mail Art Omens do not provide me with funny objects for you?  And what if you start dreaming about me before you dream about Val?  This all sounds very dangerous … and that eye, there is something about that eye.  Maybe we are already friends but don't know it yet?

Hi Cheryl! Just received your card and loved it!!! Thanks!!! I'm preparing a card to you!

Thank you. Tell your duck to talk to William Gates -- he might be able to solve your Cyberspace problems. If he can't, then i suggest that Monsieur le Canard tries the SA equivalent of NASA. Fly me to the moon, and good luck with your bits and bytes. Val

Your analyst write -- Leacing aside the nonsense words on the envelope ( Zalop & Gotij), although it is hard to leave them aside as they reveal extreme symptoms of Mail Art living-in-a-non-real-world syndrome), we come to the Dream Rules, although we are not told who makes up these rules and/or how they are enforced and/or what are the rewards and penalties fror compliance and non-compliance;

Rule 1: of course Dreams RULE. if they didn't I wouldn't have a job, and would have to earn a living doing somewhere else. perhaps I could be a Mail artist. is it well paid?

Rule 2: there are, alas, places where you can't take your mechanical duck, even in dreams. These include the Louvre (which has a strict no mechanical duck policy) and Buckingham Palace (where they have Prince Charles, so don't need another mechanical toy)

Rule 3: well, it's alright for some who have hair is this rule, but somewhat inconsiderate for those who are folically challenged and should have the option to ignore it

Rule 4: dresses of course, lead us into cross-dressing, but you will have to return to my couch later if you want to enter into analysis on this subject

Rule 5: holes, with or without rabbits, are full of symbolism. as this is a public site, I'm afreraid that I cannot comment the significance they play in your duck dreams (although i do wonder how you have moved from ducks to rabbits, and why)

Rule 6: on keeping one's feet dry, this is surely only relevant if one's feet are not webbed.

As to the location of the couch -- there in SA or here somewhere else -- as lon,g as the duck can get from thee to me, it doesn't really matter.

Regards, Your Analyst

PS The Art was GOOG, too! is the dog on the back of your Dream Sheet Amy Watson's new pooch Star? They loook very similiar.

Dear Ms Penn,

Dr Jung-Hermann has asked me to pass on the following message to you:


"Please choose one (or more) of the following concerning the interpretation of the dreams you have asked for:

i) I would like an interpretation of my artwork

ii) I would like an interpretation of my dream messages*

Also, would you like me to examine your duck?"


We look forward to receiving your reply


Regards, the Analytic Cabinet of Dr Jung-Hermann

(* this option requires you to come and lie on Dr Jung-Hermann's couch for a while.)

Dear Cheryl, Thanks for sharing your Dreams with me : I thought that you might dream about Moi, but never mind. It's all very Freudian, as is the delightful collage. Jung at heart, I'll send you something seasonal back in the next day or so.

Thanks again, and best wishes...Val

Sorry, Cheryl.  I think I must have replied in the wrong thread.  Oops...

I was not trying to hijack your project thread.  Honest!  XXX

It's so comforting to know others are just as addicted to randomness.

Looking forward to receiving my piece of the scared shroud.  A button hole - wow!  I am excited.
