Act of Kindness from Maddy

Even though the podcast is telling me about this not-so-great reality we're in, I look forward to it every week. I often am listening to the podcast when I am working on an art project. It was only a matter of time, then, that my art would incorporate an "Osterholmism."

The Sunday before the election, I was listening to the podcast, playing with a set of 100 little colorful "blobs," as I call them. (Cutouts of watercolor paper that I have painted and that I moved around on the page until I'm satisfied.) I didn't know what to do with them, I was just moving them around on the page as I listened. Mike kept saying over and over again "We will get through this, we will get through this." And then, I knew what I was doing with the blobs on that page. On Saturday, even though things felt a little less dark at that point, I made 4 more of them, each slightly different. I've attached some photos. I love how colorful and hopeful they are, I hope you appreciate them too.

Thank you for spreading the message of kindness and compassion as a way to think about our actions during this time. I know you get a lot of negative mail out there, but please keep going. This podcast is doing really great things.
