My fascination for love hearts grew from my love of looking after people.
They made their first appearances a few years into me running my own little business in Australia. I remember them popping up everywhere as I was creating ideas and campaigns and processes. They’d be on posters for our office walls to remind the team to look after our customers with love (love heart bullet points would have been a god-send) and we’d have an ongoing supply of anything love heart-ish in promotional products for events we were running. I somehow knew that a little extra love in our day, on the phone and in the parcels we sent out would make a love-ly difference. I had no idea why, yet they made complete sense to me.
Hello there. This is my first blog post. I’ve opened up a clean new page hundreds of times in the last few years to begin to write from my own home online but before now it hasn’t happened. Lots of other things have happened. Achieving other goals, aspirations, deadlines, making money, day trips, events, occasions, cleaning, organising and sorting, but not this. This one fresh new page means a heck of a lot. It’s a new channel where I finally commit to airing my perspectives out in the real wide open. Things I can’t seem to voice or put together well when I’m in front of someone, I know, are going to come alive here.
This is a big moment for me and one that I’m really taking in.
I have discovered something so super magical that releases all your super powers. Sometimes at once. Sometimes in drips and drops and drabs. Do you want to know what it is?
A white page. Fresh and empty and clean and bright. And white.
Back before the out-pouring of ideas, thoughts, rants that came when I began playing with white pages and white paper (pre-2013) I never wrote anything bar maybe a few to-do lists and well, lists. I didn’t know what white paper or white pages were. Know I do. And I am going to show you their power.
