Hi Karin,

Brussels under a tropical heat wave, drinking 2 much cold beers and worrying about my cats who are outside now ALL the time. Cats can have sun strokes 2, dear sun god.

I worry less about cat 1 who after all was a stray cat, he knows what to do but cat 2 not!

When it rains for instance cat 1 is hardly wet when he returns, cat 2 is soked!

Small but important differences. Okay all differences are important. Saw images yesterday of South African police forces shooting and killing striking miners. Yaks!

A heat wave suddenly seems minor stuff.

Trying to make postcard collages now, a bit more difficult because of reduced space but I manage. Here are 2:

My parents were new born christians and thought that music was invented by the devil while I believed that the devil had invented my parents ...

Mailing this to Lesley in response to her music collage.

2 is even more funnier: The 6th sense

Hi Karin, I glued your art piece already in an artist notebook I keep for writing texts, poems, reflections, diary and dreams. So your request becomes difficult but I made a scan of notebook page next to printed poem and a photo. Both are beyond.

Thanks Karin,

It goes in 2 directions for me: a work of art can inspire me to a poem, a poem can inspire me to a work of art. I call this «translations» because in a certain way they are translations but never in the literal sense, always metaphorical. The whole LAMUSAR project was and is intended to promote these kind of cross exchanges.

Hi Karin, as requested!


Poem around art from Karin Greenwood

I am a legend in the sky

he said to the snails

surfing on the clouds

Without me waves would not

court the sea

Without me waves would not

reach for heaven

Watch me set

is a better cure

against depression

than taking your precious

sponsored medicines

Watch me rise

so oranges can grow

instead of perishing

in the moonlight

Watch me shine with care

so you can find

a person lost downtown

like Vicky Vandermeers

My secret is this:

I am pistachio nuts

because of the lack

of greens

If I am patriarch or matriarch

has no importance

I am god and when I die and die I will

I shall shout the rooftop from the sky

& you will join me in my cries.

Guido Vermeulen

Hi Karin:

Just received your mail yesterday, and LOVED the black and white print on the envelope, and your drawing.  My husband is also retired, so we have something besides Mail Art in common; I will be sending you another note soon and hope you will respond.
