So I've been thinking that I wanted to do something creative, but couldn't come up with anything that really grabbed me.
Yesterday on the radio I caught the tail of a report in which a guy was saying they had done some sort of experiment where they sent christmas cards to random strangers, and ended up getting cards from these random strangers for up to 20 years later.
I have a friend who is a creative writer, whose christmas card always includes fanciful tales of things her family did over the past year, like save the world or the like.
I've been totally inspired by the idea of the Rolling Jubilee--take a problem and look at it in a completely new and different way, then do something.
Now I'm thinking what would happen if you wrote holiday cards to random strangers in some manner designed to inspire them to do something.
Is this brilliant? Crazy? Stupid? What would you write?
