Hi Maranda, Ive been wanting to message you for a while - just to say that I really loved your zine. I cant quote any particular parts at the moment, but i found some great stuff in it. I liked the part about hanging out on the roof, and about how different people can have totally different connotations for the same places. I can also relate to wanting to leave the place you're in, and last but not least, I too sometimes move my mouth and gesture when daydreaming about conversations (real or ficticious). Sooo, thanks again!!! x
Yeah, I might write a letter instead. There's all sorts I suddenly want to show you - lots of little quotes too.
And, about diary writing (I've kept a diary since I was 10 - and that idea of not wanting to let a memory go is so so similar to how I approach it. I write in all sorts of wierd details, that I hope will later prompt me, not just to remember it, but to get the feeling back)
I just wanted to let you know that I got your zines today - there's lots of things I'd like to say about them, but I want to wait until I can think them out straight.
For now I'll just say 'thankyou thankyou thankyou'.
Your zine "Telegram Ma'am" seems like a zine I'd love to read. I don't have a paypal or currently have any of my own zines to trade, I could mail you a couple bucks if you like.
Issue#16 seems interesting to me but I'd definitely let you choose one for me too. I just moved away from my parents place for the first time, going from a very rural small town to downtown Toronto. It's been very hard to say the least... Zines help me in times like these.
I'd love to trade with a fellow Canadian zinester. I have a list of the zines I've got for trade on my page if you want to take a look. I'd be interested in Telegram Ma'am #10, 13 and 14. I have the other ones you have for sale in Etsy. If you have any others, I'd be game!
I received the issues of Telegram Ma'am that you sent and started reading them last night. Thank you! I am glad to read them. I appreciate you putting your life out there. That takes COURAGE! I will try to write a real letter after I have read them all.
