yes, we are. Be open. (Succulence)

My #LoveYou2 sign “yes, we are BE OPEN” has been hanging in various parts of @thesucculence for years – a gift to the owners Ken & Amy – two wildly open souls. I had not sign this sign of mine for a while, and it was just the reminder I needed when I walked in the gorgeous store over the weekend.

.

I think it is time for me to make some more. Hang one on our door. Install a few around town. Maybe an openness road trip – invitations posted far and wide.

.

Humanity is beautiful. People are amazing. And yet we find so many ways to judge and to separate ourselves from one another. This practice creates chasms where none actually exist. Our human experiences have more similarities than differences.

.

This sign is riff on vintage store signage. It’s kind of a fill in the blank or madlib. What’s your big secret or hang up about yourself? Fill in the blank. Then try flipping the phrase around. What is a characteristic you judge in others? Fill in the blank.

.

Yes, we are (rich, young, overweight, agnostic, elder, skinny, smart, beautiful, mediocre, fast, successful, single, slow, in recovery, divorced, gay, ugly, poor, straight, devout, differently-abled, add your own)

.

BE OPEN.

.

Try it.
