By October I decided to share those words with even more people. Since it was the "political season" the landscape everywhere was dotted with voting signs. I realized I could make my own sign with a different outlook. My husband found an outdated sign in our barn, cleaned it up and painted it white to create my "canvas." I then took it to my studio where I covered both sides in abstract swirls of color and lettered messages. When it was dry I proudly installed it by the edge of the road in front of our home.
Every time I saw my sign I would smile and feel good about my own version of "changing the political landscape" and a good friend of mine who is an artist decided to follow suit and create a sign for the top of her driveway.
I wish I could say that I am still smiling every time I see these signs, but unfortunately someone decided to remove the sign in front of my house. I'd like to think that he or she really needed it in their lives and that they put it out in front of their own house. But I'm pretty sure that is a fairy tale.
Every day life changes. Sometimes it is hard to be happy. But for just a little while I think my messages may have added a spark to the thoughts of people passing by, and who knows where those ripples spread.
Always laugh out loud!
