Richard was the first subscriber to my PoRKeNiGMa e-mail list, which surprised me. I gathered another two since him and I've been posting my daily scrum of one. Perhaps I might get motivated and try to start a mail art team on the principles of scrum mainly a daily heads-up of what people are working on and a general two-week sprint direction for the group.

Richard used to send me a lot of mail during the Moan Lisa era, including a drawing he did a long time ago of the Mona Lisa. I had it manufactured into a rubber stamp which I lost in the move to Des Moines from North Liberty.

How nice to see all these items gathered!

I cannot remember having received mail art from Richard ever (only digital “dare miss ...” words), so I cannot show anything nor I can be a real fan. But I liked to read his philosophy about ‘how to be a mail artist’ here. And if I don’t apply to Ruud’s invitation to join this group I probably will miss more of these important things. So I hope you won’t mind this lurking-only new member.

When I receive Richard's mail I usually get some sort of visual and/or feel the need to respond right away. Today I had to embroider this.

Michael Leigh, you see it seems that Richard has it "all-in-the-bag"...

Whio the hell has a "tall kitchen"?   Doesn't make any sense but Richard's words do of course - still learning !
