For topophiliacs in Toronto, the Love Lettering Project allows people to write love notes to their beloved city. At events around the city, the group sets up a table with fancy paper, glue sticks, scissors and pens and lets people pour their hearts out. Once they penned their odes, they are given an envelope and told to go hide their letters somewhere in the city for a stranger to find.
It’s such a simple token of love and an easy act of civic engagement. Even if you decide to just take your letter home, it’s hard to stop at just one love letter. Why not write one for your favourite park, your favourite neighbourhood, the spot when you first felt at home in an adopted place, or anything else strikes your fancy?
