“A note clipped to a bramble of blackberries. Enticing, inviting, encouraging. Be here now. Observe, enjoy, smile. And 2 million neurons surge endorphins. A walk home with open eyes and lightened heart.
Thank you!” Nancy, Port Townsend, Washington, U.S.A.
In Spring 2012, Lesley-Anne launched her initiative Pop-Up-Poetry in Kelowna, B.C. With sights set on spontaneous installations of poetry in public places, Lesley-Anne has pinned up hundreds of poems locally and internationally, including New York City, Belfast and Los Angeles (see map below). In winter months, Lesley-Anne’s Illumination Installations bring light and poetry to the early dark. She has received excited responses from those who happen upon it, and Lesley-Anne continues to pin poetry to trees, fences, stop signs, bomb shelters, outhouses, and anywhere in the thick of things.
