On Sunday, May 3rd - 2015, I went to Carlsbad, CA, where I was invited to make a mural. I decided to the wall into a giant chalkboard that said: "IF I KNEW THEN WHAT I KNOW NOW" and encouraged people to use the wall as a sort of "creative time machine" where they could write messages to their younger selves. I explained that they can be silly jokes, lessons you’ve learned, warnings of mistakes you wish you could have avoided or things that would have given the younger you some relief.
I was there to hang out and hand out free stickers- and as a bonus- there was a scavenger hunt! The scavenger hunt continued the theme of messages and time and involved fortune cookies that I had made. Inside the cookies was the message "You Will Be Mighty." This message was directed to the future, instead of the past. The cookies were hidden in the general area of the wall.
To those who lived far away or otherwise could not make it out, I asked to e-mail me there message to me and that I would write their message on the wall for the.
It was an awesome experience and I hope for the next month (until the next artist takes over the wall) that it will continue to evolve and act as a source of hard earned wisdom for all who see it.
