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.

Often times these items are organized chronologically-ish somehow, or maybe to a theme, but some cases (including this instance), neither applies and what follows is simply a batch of odds and ends hanging out for another cycle into the world.

Generally an absence of annotations as the meanings either aren’t meaningful or rather self-evident (that said, maybe some annotations will appear). Carry on, bring your own stamp.

Collection: Amidst assembling scrapbooks

Snaps of scrapbooks in midst of assembly – both in creation of the actual scrapbook (which creates a lovely substate, as-it-were), the scraps readied to go within to make the scrapbooks into a scrapjournals,… plus kit(s) of tools on the ready, and the workspaces used to do both building and filling, are documented – for no distinct reason than enjoyment of the process.

Just doing some scrapbooking…

Just doing some scrapbooking. Makes up for memory loss and helps with coordination skillz. Also, art.

 

 

spend the rest of my life editing myself…

Yesterday, I was feeling the blues hard but I got out a bunch of artifacts from recent wanders and a stack of scrapbooks I’ve been filling up over the last year and a half since the onset of my illness.

Did a lot of gluing in cutting and bindering. So much content i produce & collect!

It occurs to me that I could spend the rest of my life editing myself, but I have so many more stories to tell and contextualize.

Love the thrill of finishing another unexpected project which combines art, culture, tech, history, & renegades–especially the forgotten ones.
