{messages from the universe}

Lonsdale Street, Melbourne, Australia

I've become completely captivated by finding words in public places. In the streets or on toilet walls, hidden down laneways or right out in the open. Spray painted or chalked, stenciled or carved.

I like to think of these things as 'messages from the universe'. A prompt to make me think, something to soothe me, give an unexpected giggle, or sometimes even a mirror that reflects my thoughts or feelings.

I know there's plenty of others out there who like them to. So I've started a Flickr group called {messages from the universe}.

This is a place to share images of words found scribbled on toilet walls, spray painted in the streets, stenciled on footpaths and sidewalks, or anything along those lines. It's all about words, and the words that we find written out there in the world, in all sort of manner and places. Words that make you laugh, or sigh, or ponder.

I'd love you to join the group and upload your {messages from the universe}.
