Happy Mail Box

 Someone sent me this wonderful tube of paper tape! I don't know who gifted me with it but I can't wait to do something with it.
 My dear friend Andrea in the U.K. surprised me with this packet of Peppermint tea, which I love and I loved receiving this. Thank you so much.
 Another of my dear friends, Katerina, in Thessaloniki, sent me mail art AND a copy of her son's book. The text is by a woman, but don't read Greek, so don't know how to translate her name. The photos are by Petros Nikoltsou. The book is about Los Angeles. See the Title? Now you can read some Greek.The photos are just perfect for the subject.

A new friend of mine, whom I hope to meet someday, here or in San Francisco, sent me a ravioli box full of goodies. All Asian, of the kind we do not see here in RVA, plus a CD of a local band. An amazing box of goodies.


I am overwhelmed and humbled by the generosity of my friends.

Thanks for posting Peter's book...his name in Greek is Petros Nikoltsos ( I am NikoltSOU because it is the possessive case for the females.."we are owned by...")
The gal who is the author of the book is Soti Triantafillou (her last name is the Greek word for : "rose"..literal translation: 30-petals!) **This is from an e-mail from the mother of Petros/Peter with the clarification on the Greek for me. How cool is this? We're learning Greek!
