A few months ago Dan Waber asked me to participate in a project revolving around Encouragement. The manifestations were these bits of paper that one can hand out to others; said teeny papers contained encouraging messages -- here's one I wrote for the project:
That you will receive lies
does not mean you are not loved.
And here's a photo for these Bits of Encouragement.
I like the form conceived by Dan, an aficionado of minimalist poetry -- the tiny paper slips are like seeds. And seeds can grow to be quite ... BIG, pointing natch to the potential of encouragement!
