Today I am fine tuning the message board essay against the APA style manual and it is a long haul. So boring compared to doing or receiving mail art. I received a real painting from Italy today from someone I've never heard from before. It is acrylic on a loose piece of canvas - very beautiful. Also I received, also from Italy, a wonderful xerox book of sketches and newspaper clippings of a mail artist's adventures. As always when I get mailed art I am surprised yet comforted that I've found my people!!! OK back to work.
