If you don’t enjoy progressive politix, you might want to skip this one, because that’s all we have on offer today other than some faux chickens at the very end.
In shockingly cold and windy rain, we drove north to the Naquaiya Studio for the pleasure of participating in a postcard party.
Part of the mission is a mass mailing to the preznit in mid March, coordinated from liberal groups all over the country. Perhaps all it will do is inspire us. I don’t expect it to change anything. The meetings are productive in another way as we have excellent conversation throughout.
My mind is still boggled by how much Yudy looks and talks and laughs like a Judy I used to know. The resemblance makes me smile every time. This ongoing group effort by local artists is all old folks, as far as I know. I am especially pleased with how punk rock the postcards are.
Michelle had printed out all sorts of bits of topical text that she calls “pasties” to add to postcards. She observed that the news changes so fast that some of them are outdated already.
I am using seed catalogs to assemble postcards, so mine are pretty pretty. Two of them are planned to be thank you notes for politicans who are defending the EPA.
On the way home, Allan and I stopped at Dennis Co for a remarkably cheap sale on Rustoleum spray paint…not for graffiti, mind you, but for the repainting of my bamboo poles.
Tomorrow, more politics, possibly mixed with a delicious lunch in Astoria. I have a sad on that I might miss the next postcard party because of an ACLU training session. These parties do my heart and energy good.
