Trouble at the Lake 16/25 - Tofu

Overjoyed to receive this map study from Tofu, as I am hopelessly behind in correspondence and am surprised when I get any mail! This haptic card goes one step beyond a topographic map.  I can feel the waves and water.  Tofu places me at the scene and in the middle of 'trouble at the lake' - (title on the back, along with Tofu's stamps and my address, boldly on celery-coloured paint.)

We've been watching a few episodes of a detective drama set on the Orkney Isles.  Patrick is obsessed with the place and threatens to take me on a long and torturous drive and ferry to investigate, .  I wonder if we should invite TOFU to document the journey… or maybe tofu would like to go in my place? (Just kidding!)

PS: I have begun a new mailing, so before long all the people who have sent me things for MSK and Maritime mail art, or just sent me something, will be getting replies! Phew.

  1. I'd love to travel around the Orkneys - but we need to go soon or wait until next spring - I'll pass on a winter adventure and 6 hours of "day" light.
