The attractive is  the journery your art-mail do, another positive feeling is the gift you give and receive, the surprise into a greeting !

Beauty - and attractiveness - is in the eye / hand of the beholder / creator.
Some (or many?) people around me (including the local museum) don't see the beauty of Mail Art......

Art goes straight from maker to viewer. No museum is needed, nor a gallery. The mailbox is your museum.

Stangers are the ones from the network that contact you first and you didn't know before. There is a start of every connection before it is there. The first sendings are the most powerful ones. You don't know what to expect when you don't know 'the mail-art network'.

you can reach out to the world and get impulses back from strangers in a creative way.
