sign day: october 12. what do you need?

we want to know.
in my last post i said "life is just overwhelming at times,
and we are all standing on a corner with a sign in our hands 
needing something." 
that line struck a nerve.  it lit a spark under graciel.
so we are making signs.

from graciel:  "what is the sign in your hands? what. do. you. need?
tell me.
from your gut and your soul.

if you have a blog, tell me in a post on tuesday, october 12th.
write your sign and photograph it.
write many signs if you have many needs.
listen deeply to yourself. get creative.
it does not have to be pretty.
express. your. truth.
she and me are starting a sign revolution.
obviously, we have needs.

are you in?

(what? you have no blog, but still have needs?
tell (us) what your sign would say in the october 12th comments
or post your sign on facebook and let us know!)"

she says it perfectly.
we have needs.
and we are starting a revolution.

so. if you are in, on the 12th, post your sign. or signs.
say it out loud.
link back here to my original post or to graciel's post.
or both.
and we'll link back to you.

you say you want a revolution?


  1. Ahhhhhhhhh...Love this. Can already feel myself going on a deep dive within, like a whale, deep, deep into the quiet of me.
    What does my sign say???
    I'll let you know...

  2. i want a revolution, always :)
    i'm in
    signs rock
    thanks for this chance to express yet again....love the chance to purge my soul on to paper, but this time really big and really photographed...even better xoxoxo

  3. all the signs were there...
    pointing in the right direction. :)

    i'm in.

  4. Oh, Kelly, I love that too!! So obvious, but just another nice layer to hold: our signs are pointing us each in our own right direction!
    ...It is occurring to me (sorry if this sounds so simplistic, But my signs arrived for me, & they are pretty big for me, so you know how that is...) that the first thing we need to do is have the courage to go within & ask, then the courage to make a sign & hold it up. Then, ah then, to turn it around & really read my sign for a while...

  5. I'm in.

    Interesting how ruminating on this already forces me to clarify - what is it I really need? And can I get past my fear of asking for what I need. Hmmmm.

  6. I just want to say that, "YOU ROCK"...I love your ideas, they come from your heart/soul and are so refreshingly honest.


  7. How could I miss this?
    I'm so in.

  8. i think my computer is eating my emails and email addresses....
    will you please send me yours....again. i have it, obviously, but where it is, is a mystery.

  9. i'm in.. but i have been having problem uploading my photo on my blog.. however, i will post it on facebook..
    you are so inspiring.. thank you so much!


  10. LOVE this idea. I'm in.
