A little sneak peek at part of a project I've been working on for a client the last couple weeks:
As a kid I repeated this every morning at school; as Americans we hear it a lot and know it by heart. So it's understandable that it just slides into our subconscious where we know the words but maybe don't think very hard about them.
That's something about hand-lettering something over and over again for a project like this: I am sort of forced to think about the words I'm actually forming with those letters. And the word that's been at the top of the pile in my head this past couple weeks is "indivisible". Today's a fun holiday. I don't want to get all preachy or political, those are both things I sort of hate anyway. I don't think I need to say any more than just that one word, anyway:
That's sort of the point of this whole thing, isn't it? The Union that our founders dreamed of, and along with so many others over the last couple centuries, worked hard and fought for. We're all so vastly different in so many ways, yet we're here together.
Here's wishing you all a perfect day of sunshine, yummy food, fun parades, exciting fireworks, coming together with loved ones and total strangers all celebrating the same thing: Liberty and Justice for All. Have an awesome day today everyone!
