Well, it’s leap day, so the end of Letter Writing Month. How did I do?
Not so good.
The bad: I did not write for twenty-four days. Maybe a little over a week’s progress, tops. Yes, I had the ambition to see it through. But then I got distracted by so many art assignments I didn’t get around to writing.
The good: Anyone who has written to me during the month, or gave me their address so I could write them, has received something (or will receive something if they already haven’t.) I made good on my word for that.
And I did receive some interesting stuff in my P. O. Box this month! For example, possibly the most “interesting thing” I got was from Amanda of the Knit Cycle:
Yes, it is a cork from a wine bottle. Dressed up with some yarn. A little cork “man”!
He’s been keeping my Kaito KA1102 AM/FM/Shortwave radio company.
I bought this radio second-hand from these people.* Haven’t been able to work the Shortwave for shit though, which is a shame. Wouldn’t mind listening to some CBC if possible.
I also got some nice zine action from north of the border:
More about them soon.
And a letter written on some lourvely Japanese stationery, with this guy on it:
And this mystery postcard. I say “mystery” because although it was signed, there is no return address, so I can’t respond. (Hey Scott, if you want a postal response, let me know what your address is!)
Nice postcard, eh! I like that it was drawn well. I’ve seen way too many badly drawn bikes out there. However, please note the descriptive text on the back:
Now if you can’t figure out what’s peculiar about this text, let’s look at the front again:
*Along with our current tent!
