From the archives. These are postcards that Christine would send me every now and then as I would send her some of mine. She considered herself a Mail Artist as she would travel to a far away place, create some images, mail them back to the PostMaster in that area and they would hand stamp them and then send them back to Christine. What fun!

I enjoy seeing your additions to this thread, be they current or be they archival. The postcard idea was a creative one from another era, but yes, fun to see. How we've changed in the ways we share!

the photo group called the Inner Light Society which is still alive today after 30 years.

Shedrich's work is beautiful. Thank you for adding this! S-
