"Die Tanzerin des Pugilismus" (The Dancer of Boxing). I'm always amused to hear Boxing refered to as "The Sweet Science". Well, the Sweet Science sure gives the term "Eye contact" a new meaning - as seen above. Roy's incredible seamless photo engineering is nearly peerless in the Mail Art realm and his newest offering is certainly a testament of that. The stark background really enhances the catatonic loneliness of this young female that has just been in the ring
The reverse side has Roy explaining about an excerpt from Susan Cahn's "Coming on Strong: Gender and Equality in 20th Century Sports", regarding a historic 1876 public Boxing match between a pair of women - with the winner to claim the valuable prize, a silver butter dish, seen on the bottom left. According to Roy, this was considered the first Women's Boxing match in the USA. Also featured on this side is this grand fellow:
This is one of my all time faves. I remember collecting it as a child. Although I have never attended a World's Fair, I have always held a strong desire to do so. This particular World's Fair, with the creation of the "Space Needle" and other wonderful inventions, was astounding for me to read about in 1962. Now, I see this marvelously imaginative structure on a fairly regular basis and it still is inspiring to me. I guess I'm rather grateful for what's left of the child in me. Thanks Roy, for the eye opening card! See you in the you know what!

September 17 - 2013: "Every human being is intended to have a character of his own; to be what no other is, and to do what no other can do." - Channing. One of the best uses of originality is to say common things in an uncommon way. Mail Art lends itself nicely to this lane of thought. In fact, if you would like to continue down that noble lane, Mail Art creation is a perfect venue for a display of originality - and "If you create something, you must be something" - Goethe. So, let's be a "Something" and have some fun as well. Heebee Jeebeeland welcomes all you "Somethings". The 4th Dimension is the perfect place for all you "Somethings that create something". Anything. And, if you will be absolutely silent in your mind for a moment and listen carefully, you can just hear the dreamy strains of Judy Garland singing that glorious tune "Something over the Rainbow". Ahhhhhh, yes. Remember: Senders receive! Test Tower / 1365 Centralia-Alpha Rd. / Chehalis, WA / 98532 USA

Welcome to Heebee Jeebeeland
When I was a kid, there was an old cartoon I saw many times on TV. While a child was sleeping, the unusual wallpaper all over his room came to life and began to dance back and forth, up and down in a rather fanciful symmetry accompanied by a sort of goofy graveyard mischief music. All manner of mayhem went on until the sun shone again at dawn and the dancing pranksters rushed back to their original spots and the wallpaper became still again. It is in the vicinity of that realm that Heebee Jeebeeland exists. Please send Mail Art that needs to live here and be shown on this blog. ********************************************
