Thanx, John!
Am going back to the Minden M-A & Performance Festival 30 July to 3 August (despite contracting Pneumonia there in icy December). It is run by my old Peter Kuestermann a good organiser. You'd like it there. Lodging in an historic deconsecrated Church is free. Dawn

Yes I remember. You do great things. Since those days I got further involved with Mail-art & Performance, mostly in Belgium, Serbia, and Germany. My artistbooks are smaller, less craft-orientated, and as adjunct to my poems and thoughts. The one I'm working on: 'Letters to Maria-Theresa' is just a collection of my views on Art, M-A, graffiti, performance, poetry, and philosophy, ontology, etc. Hoping to get it out (Laser-print) around July.
Keepintouch, Dawn

Hi John, good to find you here! I trust you're prolifically producing/performing as always?

I must update those pics of my books, put up bigger ones!
