send.a.message.



Karey just sent me a link to send.a.message in response to this post. I'm simply amazed.

"It was meant to keep people apart. Now, it also brings people together."

All thanks to dear Karey for the link! :)

Love that! So glad you passed it along.

karey m. said...

oh, you! what a nice way to end my evening. it's all such a mess over here in this region...

so these little gestures {no matter what your politics!} mean a lot. little shouts-out, little kindnesses...all mean so much to someone. so thanks for you.

now, i must go re-read pia's day below. i am studying how exactly to become her. step one: houseboat. step two: mad talent. {sadly, step one is more realistic.}

Awww, thank YOU, Karey!

And your right, Kelly--- very much so! :)

I love this idea... I want to send myself a message. Would that be sad? And I echo karey m.'s sentiment about Pia... Since reading about her day, I've been making notes on how to become her. Maybe I'll send her one of these wall-notes that says, "Pia, I want to be you. Will you help?" Think that will work? Meh, it's worth a try.

perfect follow-up to your grafiti question. and to answer it: i think there definitely is something raw and beautiful about it...to a certain extent. where grafiti is placed and what exactly is written has a lot to do with it. I love simple messages and artwork, but when i have to see curse words outside respectful institutions, i can't feel anything but disgust. Great question though -- i love that feature!

And Jessie--- I couldn't agree more, and thank you for your kind words! :)

Wow, amazing link - I think I keep saying that here, but really truly amazing. Not often we see take your breath away blog images because there are just so many images - this link does it for me. Thanks

Nice blog. Thats all.

welcome.

because beauty lies in the details of design. in the pencil shavings, in the blueberry waffles. the vintage dress, framed portrait, old postcard.

design is inevitable. celebrated. design for mankind.
