I Miss You

I Miss You

Five things I love about this sign:

1.  It blows up a private sentiment to billboard scale.

2.  It invites you to imagine stories about “you” and “I.”

3.  Its zigzagging ribbons have the kinetic elegance of a spiderweb.

4.  It’s soul-baring yet anonymous.

5.  It’s gradually unravelling, like a less and less potent emotion.

If it’s still there in the winter, I’ll photograph it again.

    Also that it is unfinished. Why? Chased away. Ran out of pink ribbon. Or maybe the person they missed came back.

    Ken, thanks for the speculations! Very imaginative. That’s what I enjoy about this sign: it encourages you to invent.

    Anyone else have stories about this sign?
