Hi Jack! Yesterday your real beautiful envelope with the moticos and the coffee clutch arrived! I love to have a fat heap of money at hand! It looks very perfectly made and it is really the first time that I have seen such things. THANKS Very much!! I am happy that I took part at the H. Höchs birthday box project and learned to know you! And thanks for the small newspaper; I can understand the most, but I think I often do not grasp the irony because I do not know the circumstances you have in mind. ( Now my vocabulary gets lost!) But I noticed with joy that you quoted Wolf Vostell, an artist, that is a bit forgotten at the moment. The fluxus movement was quite en vogue when I was a pupil and lived in Düsseldorf, where Joseph Beuys was teaching. He was very, very popular in the city and among the students, because he was always present at the art university and had a real inspiring way of teaching. I was quite in awe at that time with the art students. 

I will try to make something for you the next week, Friday there is the opening of an exhibition with my collages and the paintings of a friend, so I have to make preparations. And thanks for the information about Olympia! I have never been to the USA, so it is not so easy to get a feeling for the different regions for me. But I have a friend, an english teacher that is californian and I will show her the coffee clutch!  Best Wishes and hugs

Hi Jack, your description of the weather sounds as if you were living in Lower saxony! We have had a lot of rain, no snow ( already for some years!) always a grey sky and the last two summers no rain, so that the prices for vegetables are getting more and more. Now a storm is announced for sunday and the beginning of the week; not weather for a biker like me. Does Olympia lie in the country or more in an industrial zone? Here the land is flat and we have a lot of farmland, the university and only some specialised great firms. I am looking forward to the moticos ! Have a fat weekend! Charlotte

Hi Jack, thanks for your friendship! I am looking forward for the moticos and for the  cascadia coffee clutch! Are you writing as a journalist? I like the dada- poems, made from newspaper scraps and poems of Hans Arp and Hugo Ball, but my favourites are the poems of Meret Oppenheim, a surrealistic artist! Have a nice day and sunny weather! Here it is grey again! Hugs

Hi Jack, thank you for writing! I live in the middle of Germany, where the best german is spoken! In an old university town, where the brothers Grimm lived and collected the fairy tales in the neighbourhood. But I cannot understand the bavarian dialect and the "schwyzerdütsch" of the swiss people I do not understand too. I have always read crime literature in english, but not the real difficult writers. But I have not used my english often, because we always go to France on holidays, and there you have to speak french. I really adored the wonderful H. Höch stamps you made for the birthday box, so clever done! I am not good with the computer and so I do not know what  a motico is. But I would like to take a look!

Sorry Jack only just seen this post. I guess you found my address elsewhere?  I don't really come to the IOUMA site that often and hardly ever scroll down to the messages for some reason!   Love the 25th anniversary of Fluxus Bucks card.  I sent you some snail mail the other day so hopefully it will turn up iun a week or so.  All the best,  Michael

Its arrival will be mighty welcome.  My first little piece sent out has disappeared into the ether so am feeling rather hard done to . . .
