Subject: Greetings from Australia
What a great surprise to find this site!
Actually, I'd contacted ZA@Play and Sophie Perryer recommended ArtThrob.
It seems that many light/heavy years have passed since I boarded the 747 and flew off into what I was convinced would be my last African sunset. Now after 10 years in Australia I'm really craving to make contact with some old comrades again. Strange though, after contacting Irwin Manoim (Electronic Mail & Guardian), it was suggested that not too many of my "contemporaries" were still around! Where have they gone, I wonder...?
Congratulations on your extremely welcome and very good site. I'll be scanning it regularly from now on, although it's quite alienating not recognising the names of many of the artists I am looking at. GREAT work though.
I'm in the initial phases of trying to bring some SA work to Sydney in the near future, so perhaps I might prevail upon your advice at some stage... and perhaps let you know what I'm doing down here...
All the best

Subject: Nice site
I just had a look around your site. Beautiful pages. You don't know me, but Paul Jorgensen is a close as family. My daughter calls him "uncle Paul" and I've been responsible for the One People web site. Anyway, enough rambling. This is just a note to congratulate you on a really great web site and we look forward to getting the One People site back up and linked to you soon. At the moment we are redesigning the site from scratch, so this morning I was looking around for inspiration.
We'll let you know as soon as the site is back up, which may well be this weekend. Paul and Charity are negotiating today with an internet provider.
- Paul and Charity recently made a trip through South Africa interviewing artists for a future CD-Rom. We look forward to linking to the One People site as soon as it is up.
