How nice to be included in the – A Playful Path website – a collection of ideas and tools to help us bring our playfulness back into the open. When we find ourselves forgetting the life of the game or the game of life, the joy of form or the content, the play of brain or mind, body or spirit.

First day putting up posters for Wall of Joy corner of Abbott and West Pender St. Vancouver BC Canada

First day of putting up posters is complete! This was the hardest part, should go a bit more smoothly from here on. Lost 1.5 posters. One from the wind getting a little too playful and the other when I hit a patch of water repellant cement, the poster just wouldn’t stick and ended up too wet with glue to salvage. Need to sort something out with that.

My body is really feeling it today.. Im super sore and covered in bruises! Its all worth it though :) and will be out there again today again (its supposed to rain today at some point, so will have to hold up if it does. The posters need to be dry until I paste them to the wall).

I’ll keep you posted on the progress.

Have a wonderful day!

It’s Lenora Gates #jumpforjoyphoto of the day! @lenoragates Aug 7 2015

Lovely Lenora, jumping joy in a beautiful West Vancouver cove. So fun.

Amazing day, full of love and joy! Picking a shot for the wall will be the hard part.

Its my brother – Kwakwee Baker #jumpforjoyphoto of the day! July 16, 2015 #Vancouver

This is my brother, Kwakwee. Its pretty amazing to see him jump for joy, when almost 25 years ago doctors told him he may never walk again after a near fatal car accident. But my brother proved to everyone that anything is possible and here he is today, not only walking, but flying :) Proud of him and all he has accomplished and overcome over the years. Another jump of joy for the mural!

Check out his awesome art work: Kwakwee Baker Artist

Todays #Jumpforjoyphoto of the day is Kelsey Wilson! June 30, 2015

This is Kelsey. I met her at one of the Atria Women’s Resource Society SRO’s. She was in right away when I asked her if she wanted to Jump for JOY for the mural. She even asked me if she could volunteer to help when I start putting the posters together for the 18,000 sq ft mural – before I even mentioned that I would need volunteers. I love her enthusiasm and excitement for the project :)

Please help me make it happen! I only have 2 weeks left to raise the remaining $11,590 to cover expenses for the mural. Make a pledge of any amount here and help spread massive JOY around the world.

She discovered my project through my Instagram feed (social media rocks). We met up to chat about the mural, how people can get involved, and even be in the mural by pledging on the Indiegogo Campaign.

I was happy to share a few the fun pics of amazing people, doing good things in the world who have taken time to be part of the project so far. We even talked a bit about me doing a Jump for Joy mural in Beijing one day! :)

Look out on life with amazement… #quote #life #jumpforjoy

“Look out on life with amazement, not shock. The variety, the diversity, the manner of every person, the beauty amidst the drudgery, the contrasts, the opportunities, the heroism in the lives of ordinary people, your gifts, your talents, your friends – even just one friend – is all awesome. Live in awe, and entertain wonder, and you will be knocking on the door of true love. Don’t kill it with cynicism or criticism, don’t sabotage your life with moaning and complaining. Open the eyes in your head and the eye in your intellect and choose to see the stunning, awesome, diverse beauty of life happening around you right now. Meet it with your heart and you will enrich and be enriched in one single moment.” – Unknown

Mock up for 18,000 sq ft Jump for Joy Photo Mural in Vancouver

Mock up for 18,000 sq ft Jump for Joy Photo Mural in Vancouver

Some perspective on how epic this jump photo mural will be…

This is a rough mock up to scale. The small stick figure in the left bottom corner is me jumping for joy… Im 5’6.

Each square is a 6×6 or 4×6 poster, the large section is 20×40 ft

It will take approx. 94 – 6×6 sqf, 42 – 4c6 and 63 – 6×4 photos and one massive 20 x40 to create the mural. Each of those individual posters will be made up of 25 individual sheets of part, cut and asked together before being posted to the wall.
I can’t do this alone, your contributions will help create this amazing wall of jumping joy.

You can be part of this joy filled community project!

Please take the time to pledge, help create and spread massive joy around the world:

It’s Wiggy and Two Paws! #jumpforjoyphoto of the day! #DTES #Gastown #Vancouver

Taking the risk to jump is a beautiful metaphor for all aspects of our lives. Jumping is something only we can do for ourselves. When we jump, and we jump for joy, we use our own power and strength to lift ourselves up. When we take the risk to open ourselves up, we inspire others to do the same.

This is Wiggy and her dog Two Paws :) They live in the Arco Hotel (run by Atira) – location of the 18,000 sq ft mural I will be creating this summer. We chose the Hastings Urban Farm, a community garden in the DTES of Vancouver, for her Jump for Joy. We tried to get Two Paws to jump at the same time.. this is as close as we could get :) but fun trying.

This will be one of the photos to go up on the Jump for Joy photo mural – assuming I raise the money to make it happen!

I only have 25 days left to raise funds to make this unique and heartfelt work. If you are inspired by my project and touched by the work I do, please consider contributing a pledge of any amount – every bit helps to spread the JOY!

Watch the video to learn more about the project and how you can take part:

It’s Lynda! #jumpforjoyphoto of the day! Feel the joy :) #Vancouver

This is Lynda. She works for one of Atira’s SRO’s in Gastown. She said she wasn’t sure if she could jump very high.. she can, and you can feel the joy in her jump. So fun! This will look great in the Jump for Joy Photo mural…

Check out the new video I’ve added to the the mural campaign, it will make you smile:

Have a great day!
