Day Eleven: Have A Nice Day

So, I was up before the sun this morning to hang a morning greeting from the bridge across Belconnen way. I’m like some sort of joyful Canberran Santa, but with less beard, less red, and less fat. Just to note, I am more or less incoherent with exhaustion. The sunrise was worth it, though.

I think the banner came off quite well – it was large enough to read; but not so large as to be unmanagable.

I was a bit worried that I wouldn’t be able to fasten it to the bridge properly and it would fly off, cause an accident, and I would be the first ever ANU Art student to kill someone in the pursuit of art; but thankfully 8 ties, a lot of thread; and a roll of tape secured it well enough. I did take the banner down myself though – I was very uncomfortable with the idea of leaving it there unsupervised.

It was pretty hard to gauge people’s reactions, given that they were in fast moving cars – but some people honked at the banner, so I at least I know it got noticed.

Today was fairly exhausting, but satisfying. I hope everyone had a good day today.
