Aleksandra Mir - First Woman on the Moon, 1999- (publicity still)

This week's Michi is a wave to A + A. Whoops, the full caps are probs a bit much. But my italics are *never* published so how else to be emphatic? I guess I was just in THAT kind of MOOD.

Among my collection of compensatory postcards from abroad:

Louise le Brocquy - A Picnic, 1940

From Germany, the Luftpost sticker obscures the precise location...

... and this one's notes are all written in Japanese.

Perhaps you already know - Aleksandra Mir is a Polish-born artist, living in London, who transformed a Dutch beach into a lunar landscape, before surmounting it with an American flag to become the First Woman on the Moon!
