We had a good time at this Party. I imagine the children will be positively affected by the Graffiti Words. And they usually hang them on the wall in their homes after the Party. The picture (the Word) becomes a basic part of their lives. But I feel like I could have had more impact if I didn't let the children tell me what word they wanted me to write for them. I feel like they already affiliated themselves with the words they gave me. But if I bestowed my random positive words on them, my pictures could have broadened their sense of self.
If people feel like they have only the labels they had already been given, they might feel limited. As though that's all they could be. Or they Must always be That. Pigeon-holed. Possibly even limiting their futures.
If we didn't get off on the 'wrong track' (I don't remember for sure, but I think my hostess told the children that they could tell me what word they want me to write for them), I could have helped people access the positive traits that we all have inside ourselves. Sometimes dormant or hidden, but it is there.
Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Temperence, Action, etc
