I saw a meme on Facebook that said: 'Why should we only 'Rest In Peace?"  Why don't we 'Live In Peace' too?"  I loved the message though I don't particularly like the word 'should' - to me it sounds a little passive aggressive.

I was thinking about how I could word it more to my liking.  Firstly I wrote the words 'Rest In Peace' and crossed out the word 'Rest' and replaced it with 'live!'

Then I came up with this motivational quote: "Don't Wait to Rest In Peace... Live In Peace"

I have recently been loving Typography, making art from words.  So this is one of my first efforts.  For the black picture I used 'Bic Mark-It' pens on black paper.  It's hard to make a specific font with the pens due to the size of the nib.  So I just used my own handwriting.  So I'm sure with practice I will improve my fonts, but as a first effort I am happy with how this has turned out.

I think the sentiment is very timely given today's political climate around the world.  I also believe it's timeless.

So go, and live in peace!

    1. Thanks so much Sophie! It's really cool, I'm just reading up on it. Also 'creative lettering' - using fonts and creating artworks using words. It's really fun! Big love to you and your mum xxxx
