So, today we left messages all around Target. These shots are from the bathroom. The Ram Das quote can be read a few different ways :)
In the cell phones section, we left this message:
Talk to strangers, often.
And in with the agendas:
There are years that ask questions, and years that answer them.
-Zora Neale Hurston.
This is so simple, but kids love it! The excitement and adrenalin mixed with the idea that they are leaving messages for others to find is infectious. My daughter likes to leave messages like, "you are great!" and "your shoes are really nice." The boys are more into being lookouts and practicing their ninja skills.
I would like to do something bigger with them, but what? It should be something that puts us out of our comfort zone or maybe something really secret and generous.
My biggest inspiration for projects like this is Keri Smith and 52 Projects.
And be sure to check out poetry bombing.
Have you ever done anything like this? Would you?
