Postcards started arriving about two weeks before my birthday. They are of Domo Kun. He is a mascot for a Japanese television station. Anyway, 2 or 3 postcards came every day. They all have different writing styles on the back. Sometimes like a 14-year-old girl, w/ long elaborate stories. Sometimes cryptic, serial killer scrawl. None of them were signed. Some only had pictures/ drawings on the back. They came from all over the Washington DC area. Multiple postcards were mailed on the same day. They were sent to both my Torpedo Factory studio and my home. As my birthday got closer, the postcards got more & more frequent. The girls and I thought that surely there would be a cathartic moment, a big surprise for my birthday. Or at least, for my birthday, the sender would reveal themselves. But, no. 29 postcards later, I have no idea who the mysterious sender is. All I can say is Thank You. I love them all.
