Words for strangers. (2)

14/11/2010

START

Two days ago I give my words to strangers for the first time , in Antwerp, by hanging little notes on their bikes. It was so exciting, and I became so happy of doing that. Just by giving little words to someone unknown. Words that sometimes just mean nothing, words that can be a part of a long long story. But I hope people make their own story with this little sentences.
There was just one ‘sad’ thing, it started to rain, and I think the notes haven’t survive all that water. Soon, when it stop raining I continue my words-spread.

    Heb je gewacht tot iemand zo’n mooie woorden aan zijn/haar fiets vond?
    Leuk idee.


    • Nee, dat durfde ik niet zo goed. Maar moet ik toch zeker eens doen, ben heel nieuwsgierig naar hoe mensen reageren. Ik hoop dat de vinders me ooit eens zouden contacteren, dat zou ik leuk vinden.
