Some short time ago, Nancy Bell Scott posted her own picture of this lovely work she completed, and titled it "Finish Line." And I am the lucky recipient. But on the back of the piece she has written a new title: "The Road Between."

I couldn't have asked for a nicer surprise if I had gone trick-or-treating door-to-door! So wonderful to hear from Mary, who has been a regular Halloween mail-art friend.

Boy, did I get wonderful mailing from Melissa Wand. I had sent her a Souvenir of the 2016 U.S. Election, and she sent me back this envelope with a couple of cute politically-themed postcards,a nice note, and several political cartoon clippings.
