8-20-20.      11 months ago in September 2019 a friend of mine, Peter, took two pigeons for me to Iran.  He mailed them there — one in Tehran and one in Isfahan.  They didn’t return even after he got back and I gave up on them as lost.  ALAS ! or as Peter said,  Inshallah ! one came into my mailbox 3 days ago.  Amazing.  I loved seeing it again after 11 months……  It is a painting of an old Iranian village on a hill.  Unfortunately, neither my painting nor the Iranian stamp were canceled .but that’s ok — good to have it home.  thanks : ) to whoever in the Iranain postal system sent it on its way……..here is a photo for you……  welcome back !
