4 Ever There

4 Ever There

Adopted Post Office City or Postal Topic: 
Como Station, SAINT PAUL, MN 55108
Briefly describe why you chose this theme to represent the USPS: 
The Red-White-Blue image was the first I made when I learned about this project. It seemed natural to use those three colors for a Post Office image. I put the '4' on its back to mirror an invaluable but exhausted system, one that needs our active support for meeting today's varied needs of its patrons. The 'P' and the 'O' resemble stamp shapes from my childhood and jumped out of my image collection as obvious elements to incorporate. I use the Como Station for my own PO Box as well as mailing; they treat me like a neighbor of their own and it is a hub of social activity.
