Post’d: Round-up of letters and post making, vol. 2 (undated, variety)

a big ole batch all ready to make their journeys into the world

Sure, i mail a lot of cards and letters and dossiers of ephemeral treats, poems and painting. Especially to folks who have inspired me or otherwise lent a hand, and to folks (know and unknown) who seem to need a little spark to help them along their journey.

oh! the be an explorer… (envoys to distant lands)

As part of my semi-obsessive documentation for my memory and amusement, ,i assemble photos (likely) enthusiastic correspondents send of their received items, along with  “still life” photos of postal-related items or post-in-process, and often just scenes of post offices/workers/boxes.

Colleen says, “my friends send the best mail. this needs a frame”

Cameron says, “When I came home the girls shared with me their theory that you are an international spy and there are hidden meanings in the poems and paintings. It’s a pretty solid theory.”

Cheryl says: A treasure-trove of visual and tactile delights and pure joy came through my door mail slot from far away today…inside the outer envelope more beautiful envelopes of hand-made treasures with varieties of paper and delicate folds with rubber stamps and personal art with writing goodness…all strewn out over my bed in pure visual delight.  Big hugs, Dave!
