Dear Gabriel Xiloj,

In 2002, I went to Natherlands - Amsterdam. I was there for 40 days travel from Frankfurt (Germany) by train to Copenhagen and came back to Frankfurt by bus via Hamburg. And again by car from Frankfurt to Amsterdan to visit Van Gogh Museum.





Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam.

Hi Gabriel, just letting you know I'm still loving the artefact. It sits beside me on the couch in the evening, and I reach for it from time to time. The cover itself is a marvel to look at, it's both mysterious and comforting at the same time, I don't know why? My blogging is behind, but it should be posted within the next week. Thank you again! Very special gift, and there  is more enjoyable study to do.

Gabriel, your incredible book arrived today, and it has blown me right out of the water. I am in another dimension, an "altered state." First of all, it's a very beautiful thing visually, but also the taped covers and stained pages *feel* great in the hands. And the story you have imagined for how you came to "find" it is most creative. It's a good thing you included the translation paper for me! It will take me a long time to read these texts, because every letter of the alphabet has to be looked up from its symbol. I have figured out a few words already, though. Now will this all translate into English words, or are some Dutch? Maybe my Dutch husband will have to "channel" some of his ancestors and get them to help ~

I think I'm babbling. It arrived only a short while ago, and as I said, I'm blown out of the water. (In a good way!)  This is a fantastic mail art to receive, Gabriel, and I feel exceptionally fortunate today. Is it ok with you if I do a blog post on it sometime? Not right away because I need to study it first. Thank you so very much for this special artwork!

Oh, and now I know how to say to myself - "remember to take the alarm clock to work" in Dutch.

Here's what I received. My favorite part: your little drawing telling me to "thump and cut."

Thanks for the surprise mail which arrived today. I have to spend a bit of time absorbing it. Mail will be headed your way soon. It really is fun to send our "play" out into the world, and also to receive the play of others.

Ah, your "spiritual hobbyhorse" ~ I understand what you said and see the same fear in some others too. Too bad, eh? We'd have a better world otherwise. But it can always get better ... I think places like IUOMA help make it better. Actually, I think and feel that.

Oh, very interesting, Gabriel. I was immediately drawn to those works and thought there might be method with your creativity but wasn't sure. It sounds like a very exciting project for you to write the symbols together, because of their meaning, like we all learned in school at first. You might have your own language.

My asemic writing does not have specific meaning, but I will tell you this:  I am still expressing thoughts and emotions that I am having at the same time I am writing. They are in me, and they're coming out through the writing. I'm very aware of that happening, even though I don't yet understand how it happens.

At 9:28pm on August 24, 2011, Nancy Bell Scott said…
Ok Gabriel, I hope you will be interestingly surprised. It is my asemic writing on a simple little collage. I noticed in your photos that you sometimes make checkered chart-like written structures with borders of symbols and then other symbols in the squares, all of which I like very much. I have only begun to experiment, and so far mostly am enjoying writing freehand asemically and developing that, on different backgrounds. We will see what happens, it is ever-changing!

Hi Gabriel, it's exciting to see you are working on something for me, thank you, a very nice surprise! I finished a "card" for you and it went out in today's mail. A little later than expected, so I just wanted to let you know it is on its way. Guess what, it's asemic.

"..I would love to create art and send it around the world". This time your art goes beyond the world.  Heaven is now the name of the game.  The Celestial Earth-Heaven Postal Service has been already advised about your remittance. It will take care of it up to hevan.

Heb met aandacht je website bekeken. Try to connect with Miche Van den Broeck in België, ook iemand die bezig is met "alternatieve therapieën". Ze heeft wel geen Internet. Adres: Miche-Art Universalis, Steenweg op Beerse 9, B-2330 Merksplas. Huidig project: Sheherazade. Haar dochter Saartje woont te Antwerpen en heeft een project rond Marie-Antoinette.

Dag Gabriel,

Ik stuur je al iets na dit weekend. Ik hou ook erg veel van brieven schrijven en experimenteren. Dus het zal wel "klikken" denk ik dan.
