Oh NYC, how I love thee…This morning, my mom, sister and I showed up in Central Park, NYC and covered a tree with love letters.
In the last few moments before leaving Toronto, I had my favourite folks send me things they loved about the city – sushi; the Brooklyn Flea Market; the ever-present tag-a-long, deli pickle; Mexican corn; of course, Grand Central Station; pigeons, the shadows of fire escapes and turtles in Chinatown (to name a few). It was the most inspiring response – I then wrote love poems to each of these NYC bits, made one of a kind art pieces, tucked them into envelopes and filled a tree in Central Park…
I love that
you fill the sky,
and make small the
this sidewalk square
and that fire escape.
ps: keep your eyes peeled, Toronto, the Love Lettering Project is coming your way shortly…!!
