John Held Jr., San Francisco, California USA

Received this wonderful rubber stamped envelop filled with goodies today. Some ATCs, an archival document of "Mail Art Island in Brain Cell Ocean" 2001, and a sheet of artistamps that I am seriously considering adding to and sending them out affixed to M.o.D replies.

It's been a very long time since I could actually get away from my work at the Post Office, but last vacation I took some eons ago was to Fluxus Island in D├ęcollage Ocean. Fishing and swimming was great off of Ginger Island, you just had to look out for ubu sharks!
