As of tomorrow, The Happy Wall will have been up for a week. The experience has been exhausting and awesome, all in one.
My favorite part? Watching people interact with the wall. They stop, smile and sneak up. They walk around the wall, reading what other people have written. Then, they gingerly pick up a piece of chalk and pen their own tribute. It’s like they’re unwrapping an unexpected present, and it’s a joy to witness.
In honor of the one week anniversary of the wall’s installation, here are some of the things that make the people of Miami (and visitors) happy. Enjoy.
