2010 was the year of the yarn; 2011 was the year of latex!
Right. So in 2010, my posse beautified the neighborhood with yarn hearts. In 2011, we kept the tradition alive, but the project leaned a bit more toward art of the performance variety. We walked around Lake Merritt with bouquets of rainbow-colored, heart-shaped balloons, handing them over to kids we encountered along the path. The 100 Balloon Walk, as I dubbed the project, was one of my favorite events of 2011—see #3.
Again, I highly recommend creating similar sorts of cheer and merry memories in your neighborhood. Tomorrow, I shall provide suggestions regarding how to do so*.
*Hint: you're all invited to participate in my 2012 birthday celebration!
