ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE

There’s nothing you can do that can’t be done.

There’s nothing you can sing that can’t be sung.

There’s nothing you say  but you can learn how to the play game, it’s easy.

There’s nothing you can make that can’t be made.

There’s no one you can save that can’t be saved.

There’s nothing you can do but you can learn how to be you, in time, it’s easy.

All you need is LOVE.

  1. Just love how you think! “Interrupting” the alphabet with LOVE “and” adding the ampersand. My daughter has a ‘thing’ about the “&” which led me to researching its history. Right at home with the alphabet:)

  2. I so agree Wilma, it’s all you really need. What awesome fonts you’ve included in your piece. How great to find them all so tonal co-ordinated. Very vintage, very me. xk

    • hi k. i took several of these photos. the A the F the V and M are all from Whyte Ave last summer. glad you like it. i changed the colours and tone of certain letters to fit in with my ladida artistic vision..ha ha.

  3. I had such a difficult time clicking on your site yesterday. I couldn’t reach it via your comment, your gravatar or your url. It’s all working well now though, so glad I made it here. 🙂

    I love the alphabet. Letters are magical. We can do so many things with just 26 letters. I admire your work and the joy that goes into them. This looks like a lot of fun.
