“I think that I may be the voice of my generation…”

1 Feb

“…or at least a voice. of a generation.”

I’m sorry, I can’t stop quoting HBO’s GIRLS. I am just so tickled by half of the lines in the script I can’t help but regurgitate them on a regular basis. Anyway, I know I’m probably not the voice of my generation, but I did come across something the other day on South Congress that was so positive, inspiring and hopeful, yet so basic.


A hand-crafted flyer taped on the handrail along South Congress that read “LOVE (take as much as you need) STR8 :)” with a line of tear-away slips of paper that read “Love.” So simple and unassuming, yet bold and powerful nonetheless. A hand-written sign and a voice all the same.

I was so touched by this small act of kindness! It really did lift the spirits of myself and my lunch company. I figured that since Libby and I took some love that afternoon on SOCO, I could take 10 minutes and make my own “Love” flyer to put up somewhere around town and spread some love and positivity to unsuspecting passerbys. Who knows, maybe my love could brighten someone else’s day like it did mine.

I made a few, and stored them in my car for when I stumbled upon the perfect spot to spread some love. I met my good friend Sarah at Austin High to run the loop on Tuesday and decided this would be as good a place as any. I found a handrail near the Mopac bridge and taped my own love flyer for joggers, bikers, dog walkers, friends, lovers, moms and dads, kids and everyone in between to enjoy.
