Putting Your Cards on the Table

Cards: A bit of bravado helps

To Warrick Stubbs,
Golden Bay, New Zealand:
You are an inspiration. I’m hitting my stride even without the cards. As You know, I ran out of cards about 4 hours ago.
Thanks for being the brainchild of these “mask-winked” cards. One lady on the last flight looked at me and said, “I hate wearing this mask”, and thanks to you, in not a soft voice, I replied, “You don’t have to. I haven’t worn my for a long time.” Adding, “and if enough of us stop wearing them, it’s game over. Later, once we disembarked, and in the ChCh airport lobby, I passed by her again. She smiled, (the mask was off) and gave me a thumbs up.
Thanks Warrick, for all your tips and encouragement on how to reach out to those still finding their way to dumping the mask.
I must say though, the Cambridge librarian and a driver on the public bus system were a bit hectic this arvo, all in a big flap. But both settled down once I smiled at them. These cards are part of our “media arsenal” to do an end-run around mainstream media’s narrative.
