The legend of the boto is a legend from the Northern Region of Brazil, usually told to justify the pregnancy of a single woman.

Porpoises are cetacean carnivores that live in Amazonian rivers. It is said that, during June parties, the pink dolphin appears transformed into a boy dressed elegantly in white and always with a hat to cover the large nostril that does not disappear from the top of his head with the transformation.

This young man seduces the unaccompanied girls, taking them to the bottom of the river and, in some cases, making them pregnant. For this reason, when an unknown young man shows up at a party wearing a hat, he is asked to take it off to make sure it's not a boto. Hence the custom of saying, when a woman has a child by an unknown father, that he is "son of the boto".

This drawing and others are on their way to meet you.

If you like monasteries, Fike, and rock climbing to get to them, a bit of eco-holy tourism in Greece, check out google for:

Meteora (on-the-rocks):


Mount Athos (by-the-sea):

My step-daughter-to-be wears a pair of Fike brand Nike knock-offs when she's not wearing the actual Nike's I bought for her last week. They always make me think of you.

Hi there Ficus  ! I've been doing art mail since I was 10 years old, but I found out about IUOMA last December. So happy and grateful about it !!!!!

Howdy, meye [new] ol' Bud; weiser I am now. I have received a package from you, today, 15 Feb 2021. The postmark is from last year! You may have received mail from me recently or you will imminently (or maybe in a few months time!). That envelope is not a reply to the mailing that I received today because, as far as I know right now, I am not a time traveller but time and other things may prove differently. I will reply to this one quite soon because I like it a lot and have much to say regarding it. Thank you. Mel Anie (PS. I still can't post or see images on here so you are just getting lots of words from me. Oh dear.)

Hi Fike! Thank you so much for the Mail Art and printed Art Cards. I love them! I like Sci Fi, too, but am not nearly as avid a reader as you are. Hope you are well and staying safe. Best Regards, Pam
