The Blank Slate Project
What would you do if a blank page was laid out in front of you? Would you draw? Would you write? Would you doodle? Would you share something inspirational and uplifting to help others? This is my vision for 2011. To start with a blank journal to be mailed around the world filling the pages with photography, poems, quotes and messages. By the end of the year the journal will be full and I can share it here in its entirety.
With any great project comes guidelines. Here is what I was thinking:
Each person on the list will be sent the journal and can keep it up to 2 weeks. The current host can fill anywhere from 1 to 10 pages of their choice. Then it will be sent back to me. I will then send it on to the next person. Why the double mailing? One because I want to keep track of it (or because I may or may not have control issues). Other traveling journal projects I researched online seemed to repeatedly get lost in the mail or never get sent at all. This project means a lot to me and I want to make sure it makes it to the end of its journey safely. Plus this will give me a chance to scan all the pages as we go and keep an album of them for others to enjoy. Also it will keep the project moving along and others won't have to worry about contacting someone else to send it to.
