My wife and I just returned from a celestial visit to the west coast a week a go, the first day of Carnival when the entire Brazil just stops for a 4,5 days holiday. Today is day one after Carnival.  While in SFO I was invited to "a persian dinner to die for" in Palo Alto at Esther´s home.  Both, Esther Kamkar and Carmela Rizzuto are mail artists IUOMA connected I met for the very first time. It was a brigth and enhanced mail art experience.  Wow!!!!!!!!   On departing to Brazil we were number something to take off. In fron of us a plane from Alaska Airlines. I talked to my wife who knows exactly who you are that I would love to be introduced to an "alaskan dinner to die for"......  Who knows!

A couple of weeks is an excelent lapse of time for your work to arrive to Curitiba based upon what I see arriving here from USA. This moment temperature in "our permafrost" is............29ºC = 84ºF............ahahahahahahahahahaha!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

To receive mail art from Brazil in the terrestrial Alaska I imagine is something to write mom about.  To receive something from Alaska in my south is.........  I met the group of students yesterday, they are just eager to see and display something coming from Patricio´s Eskimo friend who lives in a tiny point in the permafrost where population was 87 at the 2010 census.  You better be here by December 3rd my dear friend from the permafrost!!!!!

Sherry: The dead line for te call is December 3rd. Put Alaska in the picture!!!

BACKGROUND: “Last month I invited Patricio, the Celestial Scribe, an IUOMA member, to present mail art to my group of students at the university.  It was totally awesome!  My students and I have fallen in love with mail art mainly because the many connections between semiotics (the study of signs and symbols as elements of communication) and the outstanding creative process observed in the artworks received by Patricio. We, as a group, decided that we all wanted to undergo our own mail art experience, semiotics related  The group of students decided to make this mail art call and soon it became one of the assessments procedures for the discipline of cities´semiotics by the university.  Anna Beatriz Paula, PhD  (

Thank you for Orca Express. For your next remittances and I hope to see lots of them. Both, the US and the Brazilian Post, do their homework in a very efficient fashion.  The US Post $1,05 USA-Brazil rate for a regular envelope is everything you need to have your parcel knocking the door of our terrene embassy in Brazil. Delivery under this fashion takes something between 10 to 21 days.  Certainly a long time for today´s standards but........who cares in the snail mail world? :-)))))))))))))))))))))))
