Melbourne, aside from being a hipster hub, foodie-frenzied, coffee-obsessed city, offers a lot of wisdom. Many stores, cafes and bars post quotes, sayings and other inspirational tidbits. Other times, I see an art exhibit advertisement or graffiti and take my own meaning from it based on what I need that day.
Walking down the street, my day can easily turn from rushed to relaxed with the sight of one of these signs. Their messages have the power to take me out of narrow, unilateral thinking and back to the present with a calming reminder, piece of advice or encouraging statement.
I have captured the signs throughout the last few months and featured most of them on Rehumanize Me, a project I am involved in whose mission is to unearth the common ground of humanity one story at a time (read our project’s blog posts here).
Which is your favorite? What signs do you see around your city that inspire you?
