Amanhã, espero eu, vou colocar no correio uma caixa com uma encomenda que agora acabei. Vou registar porque acho que é demasiado preciosa para correr o risco de se perder. Mas é surpresa.

Ifé Niklaus' art is like a "storm in the desert", as John Denver once sang in his "Annie's song". Well, the story beyond the music was not so auspicious, but ...
Ifé Niklaus has the quality of spread her mind in several languages including the Portuguese Language. She plays with the meaning of the words some times unplefying and amplefying the semantic like James Joyce did or the nozambican writer Mia Couto does in the present days.
She quote writers, philosophers, thinkers of several backgrounds and cross theirs ideas with their one. She puts herself in the line of fire on her persuit of freedom.
She sings, she performs, she writes, she draws... She´s a poet and an actress, and for our good fortune she is a Mail artist. And for my pleasure and delight she choose me to receive her letters. Muito te agradeço Ifé Niklaus! Bem-hajas!

Fiquei muito impressionado com tudo o que me enviáste. E gostei muito.

Como é curiosa esta coincidência: tu recebeste o meu envelope e eu recebi o teu ontem dia 25 de Fevereiro .

Traduzi o teu poema, Já o escrevi para te enviar.

Fiz ontem um pequeno desenho num envelope enquanto almoçava com a minha mãe, mas guardo a folha que tu enviáste para fazer outro desenho numa hora de refeição. Como me dou mal com planeamento vou enviar-te um desenho originalmente feito numa toalha de mesa do almoço que tenho guardada.

Enviar-te-ei outras coisas mas são surpresas. Vou prepará-las este fim de semana.

Quelle curieuse coïncidence: Tu as reçu mon enveloppe et j'ai reçu le tien hier 25 février.

J'ai traduit ton poème, je l'ai déjà écrit pour l'envoyer.

Hier j'ai fait un petit dessin sur une enveloppe en déjeunant avec ma mère, mais je garde la feuille que tu as envoyée pour faire un autre dessin à l'heure du repas. Comme j'échoue dans la planification, je te enverrai un dessin réalisé à l'origine sur une nappe de déjeuner que j'ai conservée.

Je t'enverrai d'autres choses mais ce sont des surprises. Je vais les préparer ce week-end.

Viva Ifé! Tens mail art esperando por ti na estação de correios. Dizem-me que no dia 16 estavas ausente e por isso não entregaram.

Thanks for your collection of mail art works, a generous sampling!! In answer to your question, yes, I do like the absurd. I am working on an absurd mail art reply, which l will post soon.

Ife - hello - I'm enjoying the scan that you posted of the mail art that you sent.  It's only been two weeks - could still turn up!  There is something on its way to you from Louisville KY.  (:
