Today however, a huge billboard that is a part of my norm, so much that I cannot even tell you what is on it, was blank. It is a tremendously huge billboard, larger than the majority. Seeing it blank was quite striking. It took me by surprise how much it stood out. How is it that a blank billboard is more poignant that a billboard filled with words and pictures? Why did it leave an impression on me?
As I drove along I started to play around with the idea of filling the billboard. What would I do with that huge blank space passed by thousands daily? I started thinking about ways to motivate: You Can! Do something that scares you! Embrace the new! Spread Love! Be Proactive! Then educational options: What inspires you? Explore your passion. Read. Math is everywhere, look around.
As my brain continued down this path I loved the feeling of filling a blank slate. What an empowering and inspiring thought.
How might you fill a blank billboard?
