MinXus Mail Bag: “Seal World” for Dark wall from Ms. Carina Granlund (Petsmo, Finland)

Dear friend Miss Carina sent this lovely photo of a Christmas snow globe for Dark wall, which of course he has contemplated for hours already.

We know her message is meant to read, “The Real World Is Out There.” Yet through the magic of mail-art and that special inner world into which Dark wall frequently retreats, the sentence “The Seal World is Out There” rings far more true and carries a far deeper significance. As he gazes Dark wall dreams of rocky crags along endless rocky shores and an ocean full of seals, some swimming on the waves, others basking on the stones. For is not a a seal somewhat like a mink? And could the unreal Dark wall ever grasp the real?

The mink ranch mailbag is bursting with missives for Dark wall these days. Between his various schemes and MinXus correspondents, he has almost as many friends as Empress Marie; and he deeply appreciates every friend who is thoughtful enough to write to him. Peculiar as he is, Dw is very attached to the plastic bag and black masking tape Carina sent:

The box of mail under Dark wall’s bunk is filling up. Surely in the cold winter nights ahead he will read and re-read messages and examine the curiosities and treasures from friends in distant places.

Many thanks to Carina! Make sure to visit:

    Like a real, seal
    Swimming in a sealed, bag
    Wondering how many
    Other sealed, seals
    Are swimming in this real, real

    The Royal Seal.

    Who are those people? My passions are photography, rock climbing, and hunting wild boar with a blowgun. Check out my new line of energy drinks. I have written a children’s book for adults that shows them how to remove alien implants former their sinuses. In a former life I was John Wilkes Booth.

    Be good, Dw. Those are probably nice people. The likes pulp up the ratings, I’m sure.

    I just noticed, because the white text didn’t dry up it is almost as snowy outside as it is inside. Which adds to the inner world-outer world confusion.

    Come on Empress, grab your rain shoes, it’s time to go for a walk. We’ll take a couple of minks with us and drop in to the combini. We’re out of apple cider anyway.
