We make – to give a smile

“Make something and leave it somewhere public – somewhere it might be found.  Something not too grand or careful, but honest and perhaps lovely.  When you’re creating it, think about one person happening upon it.  Make them a message.  If you enjoy this feeling of caring about something without feeling precious about it, do it again.” (Quote by Amanda Happé)

We do this every Christmas – to smile people into smiling – even though we leave before they arrive.
