I can’t quite imagine what motivated the person to create the poster offering complete strangers the chance to take, for free, a small token of:

  • Love
  • Joy
  • Peace
  • Patience
  • Courage
  • Understanding
  • Kindness
  • Goodness
  • Gentleness
  • Self-control
  • Passion
  • Strength
  • Freedom


But I think it’s fabulous!
I saw the smiles on people’s faces as they walked by it – it made their day.


After my meeting I walked by again and noticed some slips had been taken.
It is a lovely thought that the talisman, torn from the page, would be carried to help lift someone’s flagging spirits and hopefully make them feel a bit better.


And no I wasn’t tempted to take all of them except Self-control.
