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.

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!
