Day 245: Message on the Sand

May 31, 2012

Yesterday, I took a break during my workday to compose a message for you on the sand out of dry seaweed. Here‘s a video of it and here are some pictures:

When I got to the beach, there were hundreds of high schoolers there. I almost didn’t make the message because I was embarrassed to do it with so many people around. But I braved on.

Partway through my project, a group of about 10 high schoolers congregated behind me to watch me make this. They were all a chatter about how clever this was and how nice and they asked me if I was making it for my girlfriend. I told them that I was making it for my wife.

When I finished, they took turns standing by it and getting their pictures taken by their friends. Then, all of the hundreds of high schoolers suddenly left, including my groupies. They must have been on a field trip or something.

Anyway, I hope you like your message and your youtube video. This idea isn’t novel, but I don’t think you’ll care.

Day 242: Scrabble Message

May 30, 2012

This Sunday, before I went to church, I left you a message:

The girls saw it before you and were excited because they just knew it was a love note to you from dad. I guess I’m pretty predictable.

When I came home from church, you glowed when you thanked me for it. Seems like I scored a lot of points with this move.


Day 199: Balloon Message

April 17, 2012

At the retreat, I wrote this note:

My Beloved,

Your love lifts me to great heights. It carries me in unexpected directions. It drives me to exciting places. Now here, now there, on ever wonderful adventures.

Your Beloved

Then I blew up a balloon, let the air out until almost none was left, and tied it. Next I tied a string to the balloon and tied the note to the string.

What did I do with the balloon? You’ll find out later.
