"Who's old stone face?" whispered Jed to Seth.

"Here, little pig, here's the trough," said Nancy.

#188 - Coffee Harvest

Tuesday, June 07, 2011
I've never seen a coffee plantation, or how coffee is harvested, but I think the plantations are quite large and the harvesting is tedious. I love that there is a "coffee belt," the only places coffee would grow. I would love to make a real belt out of coffee beans ... or maybe coffee beans and some hemp. I don't know if coffee beans go bad ... it wouldn't be good to have them rot on my hips.
Pennsylvania is obviously not in the coffee belt. I could never have locally grown coffee. I can, however, buy coffee from distributors who have a relationship with the growers ... direct trade coffee. It is often much more expensive, but I'm willing to pay the price.

In the US there is a huge uproar about illegal immigrants, many of whom come from coffee belt regions to the south. Cries to deport are loud and far-reaching. However, most of the people who scream would never support paying more for their cup o' joe. They want cheap coffee. If the people who harvested coffee could make a decent living, they might not feel the need to risk life and limb to come to the US.

#128 cookbook & art book

Tuesday, June 07, 2011
Finally getting back to my mail art after a busy period. I went and bought used books at the local library and was lucky enough to get an art text book that was marked up and doodled in, so I don't feel bad about cutting it up! And a cookbook is from the 60's, boy were those recipes bad. Will be great for mail art.

#187 - Local, Even When it Hurts

Monday, June 06, 2011
I try to buy local foods as much as possible, even wines. I live in southwestern Pennsylvania, which is not exactly a vineyard haven. There are vineyards around here, and more up north, on Lake Erie, but the grapes don't have that je ne sais quoi that makes for a good wine. I am not a wine connoisseur, so I can't put into words what makes the local wines taste odd. They just do. Plus, I always have heartburn afterwards.

robayre - mailart 83 - 89

Sunday, June 05, 2011
I'm actually really excited and in love with these pieces. They are on empty envelopes that I sealed shut. The addresses are written on the reverse, which is the side that seals, the opposite of the side that is usually addressed. I coated them with gesso, then applied dry pastel, watercolor pencil, watercolors, acrylic paint and colored pencil. I love, love how they came out.

And now, after this post, I am only one week behind in my mailart 365. I promise, I am not defeated yet. I hope to return in a couple days and post the pieces that should have been posted this last friday AND a load of the awesome mailart I've been receiving. I tell ya, I've had a PO box for a couple years now (I think) it's never been so active.
