Why I am involved in Mail-Art:
I love to make artful connections with people, mediated by the postal services of the world. One of life's great delights is receiving a hand-wrought message through the mail. I love the tactile quality, the casualness, the immediacy, the surprise, the postage stamps and markings of the journey... One of my top-10 favorite art exhibitions was a mail-art show at the Musee de la Poste in Paris in 1994. Mail Art is a gift.

Looks like you like bees at least symbolically. I leave you a story I was told about the death of a lady beekeeper. I also leave the drawing I made at that time 10 years ago now.
I used a quick Google translator as the text was written in Portuguese.

When a beekeeper dies, it is the duty of his immediate family to notify bees that the beekeeper has died. For this it is common to use a long black ribbon. Such tape is attached to the hive of the oldest swarm, or in a central location to the set of tenements.
Bees are one of the few insects we have a relationship with. We usually consider insects to be animals and tend to crush them quickly without contemplation.
Cicadas, crickets, fireflies, ladybugs, butterflies and bees are tolerated as symbols but we prefer that they exist at a safe distance.
Ancient beekeepers know that if a swarm is not notified of its keeper's death, it will likely die.
There are no scientific explanations, at least as far as I know, but they told me that pragmatic scientists after some failures of their scientific stubbornness decided to put a black ribbon on the swarms that they later acquired due to the beekeeper's death. Previously, despite improving phytosanitary conditions, providing more food, giving more protection to the bees, the bond created with the original beekeeper proved to be incorruptible and a lack of vitality befell the hives after their disappearance. No explanation how bees died. The most successful cases where there was no extinction of the swarm told me of losses of two-thirds.
