Lovely.

Immediately 'pinged' to two other current cultural initiatives that promote well-being: book crossing and the 'values' project.

In book crossing, a book is left in a public space so that someone else can read/share and have it. This title can be 'recycled' into another public space, or a new book title can be left. Round and round it goes ... A small civic gesture that reverberates ad infinitum.

In the values project, words like 'respect', 'kindness', 'joy' and 'integrity' are stenciled onto public roadways and/or sidewalks, with acrylic paint. Weather eventually erodes the lettering, but in the interim, the 'values' linger as a reminder of our civic commons .. O'joy.

You are a gem Ryan. A Hamilton voice For Good. Thank you.
