‘Maybe we should develop a Crayola bomb as our next secret weapon. A happiness weapon. A beauty bomb. And every time a crisis developed, we would launch one. It would explode high in the air — explode softly — and send thousands, millions, of little parachutes into the air. Floating down to earth — boxes of Crayolas. And we wouldn’t go cheap, either — not little boxes of eight. Boxes of sixty-four, with the sharpener built right in. With silver and gold and copper, magenta and peach and lime, amber and umber and all the rest. And people would smile and get a little funny look on their faces and cover the world with imagination.’
Came across a hear warming piece of positive news via Buzzfeed this morning.
This person (or these people), make (s) uplifting collages to inspire or comfort strangers, by leaving them on their cars for them. The idea being to spread joy and positivity.
“I grew up watching painful sorrow. As a follower of postsecret, I have witnessed how other peoples’ words can heal. So, in early April, 2013, I started turning my art(really it’s just crafts, I’m not that fancy) into making collages with messages and leaving them anonymously on people’s cars. I hope this spreads as much joy to the receivers as it does to me.”
Here are some of them, enjoy! :)
I LOVE the non-seriousness. I LOVE the creativity, the childlike simplicity that for me, expresses more wisdom than the endless crappy adverts or greying bad news newspapers we would normally find left n our cars and at our doorsteps. Fancy that, a free piece of paper that isn’t trying to sell you something, with beautiful colours allover!
Let’s spread more of this kind of thing around the world, we sure do need it :-)
