Mail Art Call from France

I know nothing about this art call, but thought I would pass it along anyway.  My French is quite rusty, so I used an online site to translate this message which just came in today:

A Notable, Inspiring Quote

Kadydid on daylily - photo by HHC
This timely quote just came in, 
passed along by a mail art pal in Canada:

"I know the world is bruised and bleeding, 
and though it is important 
not to ignore its pain, it is also critical 
to refuse to succumb to its malevolence.  
Like failure, chaos contains information 
that can lead to knowledge---even wisdom.

"This is precisely the time 
when artists go to work.  
There is no time for despair, 
no place for self-pity, 
no need for silence, 
no room for fear.  
We speak, we write, we do language.  
That is how civilizations heal."  
- Toni Morrison -
