The very first Love Lettering Project was a collaborative affair with the ever-inspiring poet, creator and monster-maker, Rhya Tamasauskas.
During one of the weekly meetings of our writing collective, Tuesday, Rhya and I wrote love poems, then turned them into small one-of-a-kind collage art pieces and slipped them into envelopes.
During that July afternoon, we put them everywhere – in phone booths, in bins of cherries at fruit markets, in gardens, on park benches, under windshield wipers on parked cars.
I remember feeling elated and giddy with the goodness of it all. That was an exceptionally good afternoon.
She sends her love west,
enveloped and stamped,
licked with remembering, with wishing.
