Synchronistic Trashpo from MAMartha

I apologize for the godawful pics of this awesome thoughtful mail art.  I love mail art that tells a story and explains the journey from finding to creation.

good point Martha--because we all have good and bad inside of us, it's just a matter of which we choose to follow from moment to moment. I don't believe any true 'evil' comes from outside of humans themselves.  Sometimes I've wondered if the process of getting older is marked by the shift in belief that most people are basically good to the knowledge that it is only the minority who are basically good. Maybe that seems cynical, but that has been true in my opinion. Luckily the 'special' people are shiny and you can pick them out of a crowd:_) haven't heard the word Marduk in a long time

Absolutely Diana, often I have considered to join the cult of one of those ancient dieties who are both Good and Evil, like Baal Marduk, if I remember rightly.

duality definately seems to be the rule rather than the exception in life--just like some of the richest moments of my life where also some of the most terrifying

I am doing that Diane. With my tablet which is both a blessing and a spoon of the Devil, or a spon, or spook, something like that. Slowly I am coming to terms with it and it has its good points. What goes to show, like being crook, everything is both good and bad at the same time. In the six months that I have the little gadget I had not been able to use it much, now I am beginning to understand its twisted logic, thanks to my twisted neck.

maybe you can do some digital art then until you are healed.  It is hard being in a body sometimes:)

yes it makes you think how would they feel if they only knew. Thanks for the good wishes, Diana, at least now I can do a bit of sitting at the computer that is because i mostly lookstrait ahead, but looking down for only a little while is not on. So no drawing, painting , collaging, etc that has to wait.

The photo is perfect, what are you saying, Diana? But I have to improve my writing, even for trashpo it is atrocious.
