Attention everyone who made a puzzle piece.....LISTEN UP
I have received questions as to why the puzzle pieces are still in Latrobe and not in New York now that the exhibit is over. Here's the answer.....
FIRST and foremost .....RELAX!! BREATHE DEEP!!!!
ALL PUZZLE PIECE are going to Brooklyn New York.
TRUST ME......ALL 2,250 will be there!!!!
SECOND.....This is a very good example of what the puzzle project does to a community in general. I have stressed this so many times...and will stress it again....
THE PUZZLE ART PROJECT is unlike any project you will ever participate in.....in your whole lifetime. Truly....It's a way for EVERYONE to be able to connect. And not just connect with the world but connect with your neighbor....your friends.....your coworkers.....it brings everyone together to share the love we all have for each other. You don't have to be an artist you just have to have something meaningful to say! And when people finally understand this......BAM! IT'S LIFE CHANGING!!!!
So......with that said.....when the puzzle exhibit came down....we all went through a day of depression. Blank walls.....sadness....it was awful.
Then it hit me.....LET'S SPREAD THE LOVE!!!! Lets find venues where we can continue to show people how amazing this project is...... AND lets ALWAYS HAVE blank puzzle pieces at the Latrobe Art Center for anyone who is still wanting to participate in this world wide project.
And so it began....Latrobe Historical Society, YMCA in Ligonier, and Building Bodies.
Once you have puzzle pieces on YOUR WALLS the happiness and love just immediately starts oozing out of everyone. It's infectious, it's amazing. AND an amazing feeling for me and my LAC crew to be able to spread so much happiness and joy throughout. Watching everyone's face light up as the Instillation goes up on the wall is so gratifying. Words cannot describe the joy and happiness that is inside of me each and everyday. Once the project enters your life....your connected to it forever....
Remember this my puzzle friends..... someone, at least once a day is looking at your puzzle piece and smiling....YOU have just made a connection. YOU have just helped make a difference in someone's life. Because of YOU and YOUR STORY they feel happiness....they feel empowered......they feel comforted.....they feel loved........or they just simply realize they are not alone in this great big world, we are all connected....we are one.
BE HAPPY, FEEL THE LOVE and think of all the individuals you are connecting with. So if we can continue to spread this amazing feeling a little bit longer within our community....then so be it. My mission in life is to be of service, to serve, to love, and to uplift each other. And now that you have become connected with your piece it is YOUR mission as well.
This project just keeps on going and growing by the minute. Follow us and the Puzzle Art Project on Facebook and Instagram, so you can see how much impact a simple 24"x24" blank puzzle piece has and where all it is going.
So now....think of it this way.....your puzzle piece is ON TOUR. .. . WE'VE TAKEN IT ON TOUR.....TO SPREAD THE LOVE....... THE LOVE TRAIN!!!! and the FINAL DESTINATION......BROOKLYN NY.... Tim Kelly What more could you ask for?!?!
Remember at least once a day to spread the joy, the happiness, and the love to everyone you meet.
