COVID Card #4

May 9, 2020 | 2 comments

Apparently my COVID Card descriptions are “hilarious” because in them I state the obvious. What can I say. Stating the obvious is a skill I’ve mastered over the years. I’m sure people who use site readers appreciate it. So…Card 4 picks up a motif from Card 3: the postage stamp with landscape. The landscape is the same (at least sketchily so): one tree, far horizon, some mountains in the distance. In this case, there is also a sun. The landscape is repeated below the surface and is viewed through a postage stamp shaped hole in the ground. It is also repeated in the upright postage stamp being propped up by a slightly sketchy board — or is the frame transparent? It should be clear (the answer, not the frame). No big mystery, but people see what they see.

Cards 1-100

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.
