In my studio one night, I found a small scrap of paper and wrote on it the truest thing I could think of:
Seeing it so plainly, I wanted to scrawl it over and over and leave it everywhere I went, to remind people that we all have the same fundamental desire. We all want our lives to mean something. We all want to matter.
I had stickers made, and put them up in spots where people would be surprised to run into them, often in neglected or overlooked places. Then I started sending them off with friends, family, and strangers. People email me photos of the places they have chosen, and I post them here. (Click on any thumbnail to scroll through the full-sized images.)
Seeing photos come in from different states and countries, from places I’ve never been, has been such a thrill. There are currently stickers on three continents, and it’s my goal to reach all of them. If you’d like to participate, contact me and I will send you a sticker.
