COVID Card #329

March 30, 2021 | 0 comments

Despite Peggy Strong’s very short life, there is a bit more information about her available on the web than many of the female muralists who lived twice as long. She seems to have been fairly well known in and around Tacoma, Washington and just a few years ago, Cascadia Art Museum hosted a retrospective of Strong’s work.

At least one writer (in 2016-ish!) seemed to think it an achievement that she was a successful painter despite being paralyzed from the waist down. I’m just going to leave that there…

Strong created one post office mural: The Saga of Wenatchee (Wenatchee, Washington).

The United States Postal Service has been hit hard by the pandemic. Controlling elements of the Federal Government (the president and Republican Senate) do not want to provide aid to the service. So, it’s up to us. It may seem insignificant, but if we all sent just a few letters a week, we could help ensure that our daily, free mail delivery service continues. For the past (see the card number above) days, I have drawn a card each day and mailed it to someone the next day (none are sent on Sundays; two are sent on Mondays). Please consider mailing cards and letters while we still can for 55 cents (first class letter postage). If the USPS fails, you could find it costs $8 or more to send a letter. And that’s just one of the ways we will all lose if the USPS shuts down.
