This week I was on my first ever strike. The union I belong to of teaching assistants is on strike (here’s info on the strike). So for the first time, I was on the picket lines – yep I was out in the midst of the ice storms and extreme cold weather alerts.
After picketing, I saw this postcard at one of the university buildings.
It was one of those rare promotional cards (called inaccurately postcards) that are actually formatted as a proper postcard. See the back.
It is for an opera called “Postcard from Morocco”. I added my own note:
“An opera is not a postcard but this is! I found this at UofT after my first time ever on strike. Picketing in the freezing cold and driving snow wasn’t fun – but I liked gabbing for four hours! “
