Received from De Villo Sloan, USA--Dear Cheryl, tell Bruno I Have Lived Many Years Without Windows Watching Daily

Once again De Villo asks me to break down any visualized filters set by my brain that gives form to a preconception of meaning.

Received from Cheryl Penn, South Africa--No He Did Not

Two perspectives of the same planet: winter in South Africa and spring here in Minnesota. Cheryl does a great job with the paint, line, and text. Of course, my heart always throws me an extra beat when I see those fish stamps on the envelope in my mailbox:…
