"Hi there Richard. I have just been trawling round the site, poking my nose in odd corners never before visited, and I found the 'lost mail' group.  Amongst the sad orphans was an envelope from you to me dated 2014.  I can confirm…"

"Love this anecdotal story!  This fellow from the Continent who kept tearing up your work sounds like a kind of guru of ephemeral ephemera... you reached a sort of enlightenment through trial of de-construction! "

Blog the second: serendipity perhaps . . .

I've been working hard on a new collage.  I covered a sheet of paper with random pieces of magazine, no real thought, just following the fancy.  I had three copies of the same issue of a supermarket give-away and, for some reason that I will probably never fully understand, a picture of a humble bath-brush caught both my eye and imagination.  I tore them out, halved each in a different way, then added them to the work in hand; and that was as far as it went.  The muse left me and my creation…See More

Welcome to Occussi-Ambeno, Mary Anne!

I think they're perfect...And we'll always know between us when they were sent. There is one of those faint orange digital bar codes across all the stamps (the artistamps and the U.K. stamp). The U.S. does that, too. I suppose they think that their superior new technology leaves the postcard "prettier." Little do they appreciate that mail artists love the roughed-up and postmarked "look!"  I still love it.

Hi Mary Anne! It arrived! You were quite brave to post it on that specific day. I just love doing “edgy” things through the post, don’t you? Something is already on its way back to you...

Earthling, this may be the last but certainly it´s not the least welcome message to IUOMA you are going to receive. I’m a celestial mail artist living in a heavenly uncharted corner of the faraway universe called “Republik van Patland”. I would love to be the other end if you wish to trade mail art with a celestial mail artist.  If that is the case at the time your envelope should read as follows:

The Celestial Scribe
Terrene Embassy
Republik van Patland
Caixa Postal 461
Curitiba-PR
80011-970
Brazil

I look forward to seeing a piece of yours in my terrene mailbox. I´ll do my homework after receiving your artwork. This is nothing less than a celestial promise.  I’m Patricio, Celestial Scribe & Republik van Patland Official Envelope Provider.

In regards to your comment on my 50 MailArt Book Project...Whatever you would like to do is fine with me. Just write a note to me with your intentions when you send in your art. My goal was to reach a large group of MailArtists from different countries around the world and to create a small body of work that I will pass on to my grandchildren. I want them to understand that art brings people together. Especially today, when I see so much that is trying to pull people apart, I feel that sharing artwork is one small way to bring people together. Looking forward to seeing your work, Best Regards...Sharon

Tarraa ta ta tarraaah!  here goes nothing though I should say at first that I am not much in love with computers and only take to them as a last resort.  To me they are like saws or alarm clocks; merely a convenient tool.  Not that cutting something in half - or being on time - is without its pleasures but a blunt tooth or missed appointment will hardly ruin a life.

It has been a sunny morning and I have been multi-tasking (again) which is to say that I have been waiting for the…
