Sweet idea, how powerful a few words are, touching to see reactions. I did something similar with my “thought bubbles”

Thought Bubbles

pulling the string on the side opens the little bubble up and inside a thought of course! and a piece of candy (they are little mini pinatas) and a mini piece of art. I would randomly drop these in public areas for people to come across, only imagining their surprise. I may make some for the holidays, I think I will have some time…at the very least I can make little strips of paper with positive affirmations, FUN!!

Day of the Dead

Saturday, November 3rd, 2007

Yesterday was the first productive day I have had in three weeks, it felt soooooo good to be productive, actually got my printer to cooperate, solved some problems, made phone calls, did errands, painted,  and then was very moved by an act of kindness from a dear friend of mine.

Stacy lives in the Bay area which is where I lived most of my life, my brother is buried there. Stacy and her husband went to his gravesite, (also the site of several family members), created a shrine, and said prayers to honor his passing for Day of the Dead. I had thought she was only going to clean off the tombstone and leave a small bouguet of flowers so I was very surprised to see all she did, I was so very touched by such a selfless act.
