Timely Thoughts

Hello Mail Artists & Viewers,  

These are certainly challenging times as our world changes in ways we never could have imagined.  I've been thinking about what we do and how we do it, and why.  

Many of us are becoming more aware of our surroundings and of the potential health risks and possible dangers of relating one-on-one and in groups.  

A little while ago I was wondering if I should put our group mail art exchanges on hold.  Several participants indicated that we NEEDED to keep the opportunity for creating and sharing mailable art available, to help keep morale up.  I agreed.  Perhaps getting a visit through-the-mail is the next best thing to being there!

Simultaneous to the concerns about handling the mail (You can let it sit somewhere for a day or two before opening it and/or wear gloves if you feel more comfortable doing so...), there are reports coming out that our USPS is suffering revenue loss from declining mail volume.  (Use of electronic statements, etc. may contribute to less mail going through the system.  And how many people do you know who actually write letters anymore?)

Being able to exchange art through the mail means a lot to many of us, so I hope we will continue to participate in the swaps and personal exchanges.  In my spare time I made up and printed out the stickers (shown above) that I hope to use on envelopes I send out.  I think the message says it all.

I always look forward to seeing the art coming in for our swaps, and wish all of you good health, peace, and much creative inspiration.
