Thank you Nancy, and continuing your Twilight Travels thread, here's my full textual response that I fragmented and then halved, just so that you, Nancy, could experience a bit of the Unseen too:

Here is Mel Anie's collage response to "twilight travels," which she couldn't see at the time--so interesting! It's on vellum, and on the back is her handwritten description of what it was like, not seeing images here, her Chronicles of the Unseen. Thanks, Mel Anie -- wish I could include the uncollaged version of the message on the back, but my computer wouldn't let me download the one you emailed me. Maybe you will post it here too.

Chronicles of the Unseen -- what an original + inventive way to deal with your image predicament, Mel Anie. I can't wait to "see" it! We should all be showering you with in-person mail art. Maybe we all are and I didn't know it, but am glad Zoo reached you. Thanks for the showing on Asemic Front 2, DVS -- another goldmine I missed in 2020 and look forward to digging into.

Thank you for this, DVS. Nancy, Twilight is wonderful. To me, it's says 'Egoli' - and I would have responded more in this vein had I seen it yesterday. As it is, I have already sealed my Chronicles of the Unseen, which is a direct and impulsive response to Zoo and Twilight Travels. It will be on its way to you in Monday's post, Nancy.

For those who might not be able to see the NBS IUOMA gallery scans or would like a different context, they are re-posted at Asemic Front 2. THX to NBS

Trashpo prophecies have spoken of the arrival of The Blind Seer who will help guide us through the Trashpocalypse and to The Great Landfill.

Nancy, it seems to be a ning-thing, my unseeing; the reasons have been explored but remain unknown. I can't see or upload images, nor send messages or do very much other than comment. So I do that now, mostly blindly (which is very strange when most mail artists are considered visual artists). I understand, and share, the emotions you express regarding your twilight piece even though I cannot see it. I am working on a reply to 'Zoo' and I think something, now, is properly brewing.

The past year felt to me like a lost, distracted, very unfocused one, including art-wise. All over the place. But your descriptions/reactions are kinder and more uplifting, DVS and Richard, so let's just go with those. :--} Mel Anie, why can't you see images at IUOMA? Maybe this has been discussed elsewhere and I missed it. I've sadly not visited groups here in many months, but that will happen soon. DVS, by all means, go ahead and snag some scans if you like, anytime you like, and thank you.

I will give this a go, DVS. A few days ago, I scribbled a loud note to record my 'CHRONICLES of the Unseen'. Perhaps I will send it to Nancy. (PS. I think that this new environment also gives me a new perspective on asemics).

That's pretty cool. Mel Ange,

So you're creating this "IUOMA of the Mind"? based on comments you read?

You should try to draw what you see: How you imagine the NBS piece to look?
