"Nice one Terry. Met David once in London when he came to my homage/ celebration of the work of the late Michael Scott- before he flew off to Oz. We came to Sydney back in 2008 for a lovely 2 weeks of culture and sight seeing before staying…"

"Of course - a special day in the mail art world and lives long in my memory. Pat B got in touch a few years back - seems to edits a motor cycle magazine? His email is ben at partb. co.uk or was last time I contacted him. …"
Hi Michael, sorry for delay in replying. We were in communication around 2000-2001 I think. But also, long before that, I once delivered a friend in a sealed box to your International Mail Art Convention, in Lambeth, around about 1990 I reckon. Ben Part was his name, 'Part B' his alias. We then came in and made mail art together. It's a memory I still cherish! John Held Junior was also there, he helped me unload the 'parcel' from my 'delivery van'... Ben was not a small chap! I've long since lost touch with him. Marta Aitchson sent me some of your Ping Pong collaborative stamps which are lovely. Hope you're well and happy! Best wishes, Amrit
Hi Michael, I can't seem to figure out how to invite people after the fact, but I would like to check out my mail art call. Please don't feel obligated to participate, I think it may interest you though :) I'm not soliciting anyone, just a friendly invite to my first attempt at a mail art call :)
I will make an effort to check in often here too. I have really scaled back, in general, with social media, but trying to make more art. I have started the year by making some collages in a small Moleskin. I also hope to do more with photography and video, but we shall see. I'm going to take my time this evening to look through all of your photos here.
I'm very happy to connect with you here! I miss seeing your work too and commenting on your photos, so maybe this place will serve as a good replacement. I'll be sending you something in the mail soon! A big hug to you, Hazel and Archie.
Hi Micheal, I arrived home the other day to the mail art you sent me. Love the collages and the postcards. They are going to become a great part of my already vast postcard collection :) All the best, Molly
