I'm in love with this participatory website, Learning to Love You More. The site is comprised of a number of assignments given by artists Miranda July and Harrell Fletcher. People send in their completed assignments and visitors to the site are free to view their responses. A lot of content here... it's easy to lose track of time looking around.
My favorite section so far has got to be assignment #63, Make an Encouraging Banner. I've looked through them all twice now. Some of the phrases are really interesting. Maybe this is the final word on whether I'm a glass-half-full or glass-half-empty kind of gal, but when I tried to think of text for an encouraging banner, I drew a blank. These people were at no loss for ideas. A lot of them are simple, but meaningful.
It's also striking to see that nearly everyone chose to make their banner with bright colors. I guess color can be encouraging too.
