In 2016/17 I ran a mail art call for Year of the Monkey because I myself am a monkey.
You can see the wonderful contributions on the Year of the Monkey Mail Art blog.
As my good friend Eva wrote to me, 'Now you will always be getting monkeys'. I only half believed her, but I think she is right. (Another friend, Heleen, told me that Eva should always be believed - I'm finally on board, Heleen!) And thanks to Eva for helping me decide what Y is for.
Here's the evidence - a monkey on an envelope from Elena.
Is there something your friends/family associate you with, even though you feel you have moved beyond it?
Also, should I have another call for Year of the Earth Monkey in 2028?
