If you followed SF Foodie’s advice and took your mom to the Asian Art Museum today (it’s Target First Free Sunday!), on your way to Bodega Bistro you can point at this inspirational quote from the Kahn and Keville guys to make her day:
Also, about a week ago Tender friend Jeff Waldman, the guy responsible for installing doors to nowhere all around San Francisco and other happiness projects, wrote to us about his most recent project for mother’s day: card stations next to mailboxes with pre-stamped envelopes, a flower card, and a simple note (pens included). No excuse not to tell Mom you love her.
Apparently Jeff and his friend Dave Harmatz installed a couple of them in the Mission last weekend, and he told us that he intended to install a couple more in the Tenderloin. We haven’t seen any so far, but maybe you guys have? Let us know.
Jeff says this project is meant to inspire and be contagious in an exponential way:
It’s a couple of dollars and an afternoon. It’s a class project or a family affair. It’s simple and pure and meant to inspire actions of similar merit. So I beg of you, if you’re reading this, Go out and do this, if not for Mother’s Day, for Father’s Day. If not for that, for no special occasion– just because sometimes it’s nice to get a letter from someone you love.
