Eonise points towards the sea. A few years earlier, her mother had sat in exactly the same place and also pointed her finger towards the sea. With tears in her eyes, she said at the time: I hope that all of my children will be able to enjoy this view here one day. Your wish seems to come true. Eonise, one of five children, is the first of her daughters to attend CASAdelDRAGON. We have known each other for 8 years from the Serban summer schools in Coiconesti (Romania).

It was my wish too. And I’m happy.

In the evening I asked everyone who had ever received a personal letter. The answer was: none!
So I handed over two mail art letters and gave them the chance to open them and explore the contents. The participants were touched by the art from Spain (Francisco Galvez) and Germany (Michael Ley). And they asked me about the background of mail art in these times.
