Short Pithy Statements – Do They Make a Difference?

This is a Tree! Museum Exhibit

Cut down the trees and put them in a tree museum

Charge the people a dollar and half just to see them

Don’t it always seem to go

That we don’t know what we got till it’s gone

I have been researching Pop Art

Everything predicted way back then is coming true with a vengeance

Not only are they are cutting down our paradise

And turning it into a parking lot

Everything Andy Warhol said about fifteen minutes of fame is now a reality.

Reality TV

Say goodbye to privacy and values.

The idea of FRASB is that you can make a difference.  FRASB is a mobile application and it does take a little getting used to.  I tend to work in batches and themes.

When I went out to vote yesterday, I took batches of images of the precious countryside and worked on them in Photoshop.   Have been working on an idea for Haiku for a while and so this design challenge is putting me through the paces.

First of all the image you choose must be square.  Or be able to be cropped to a square, and there must not be lots of white empty space.  So the idea is short pithy and filled with meaning.

Sounds like a Haiku to me.

Haikus are written to a formulae

5 syllables

7 syllables

5 syllables

Isn’t it a shame?

That you don’t know what you’ve got

Until it has gone

Now there is more than a trick to getting this right.  The main words of the pithy Haiku have to be hash tagged!  How so?

Isn’t it a shame#

You don’t know what you value#

Act before you lose#

Now that the text is prepared – it can be posted from a mobile or android.

The FRASB App can’t be downloaded to Laptop

Save the prepared images and text the Tweet like – life statement with Hash Tags

Some will applaud and others will re-suggest the post.

Good luck

May the Universe be with you!

    Aw, Joni Mitchell! The pre-cursor to Tori Amos.

    What I absolutely hate about reality TV is it’s lack of reality. All of those shows have at least half a dozen writers. There’s no authentic living going on at all in such programs. This flavor of entertainment strongly encourages an environment of drama, anger and addiction. Reality television producers make sure of that by intentionally stocking the residence of their players with ample alcohol; many forms of entertainment and communication are out of their grasp. My resolve is turning off the television or watching something else before I get caught up in all the petty arguments and fights. After all, I’ve been down that road years ago and found myself beginning to abandon my own reality.

      Hi Charity,
      Thanks for your comments. I agree whole heartedly. So much so that I don’t have a TV!
      I prefer create rather than consume.
      Cheers, Jo
