Tasks / Merci

Whilst in Scotland, I couldn't help but notice that along the roadway, there were signs posted, simply saying, "Thank You". These signs were as regular as stop signs, or speed limit signs.
I asked my grandfather,"why are there Thank You signs posted?"
He replied,"Well, it's thanking us for driving safely. Also, if you can't read the sign, you're driving too fast."
He may have been telling the truth, but I preferred to interpret the sign at face value, like a bumper sticker that says, "Don't be a jerk." Just "Thank You".

Make a Thank You sign, and post it appropriately.
Thank you.

"Why are there Thank You signs posted?" "Well, it's thanking us for driving safely. Also, if you can't read the sign, you're driving too fast." I like this interpretation. I made a Thank You sign and posted it on a street corner.

This praxis involves personal thoughts and stories. If you don't like that, you're probably on the wrong site. This is also a rather patchwork praxis; a jumble of different ideas and methods; an assortment of lost pieces from different puzzles that n...

Danke Under cover of darkness, at approximately 16:35 CST 01/05/10, I enacted my my first sfØ task, Merci. The following is a reconnaissance photo of my mailman, a delightful fellow of Germanic heritage. The photo is rather horrible in itself, ...

I thought this task would be easy. I completed it many years ago at work, and the evidence was still around! Nine years ago last week I started my first job after moving to Chicago. I noticed the posting in the Chicago Tribune classifieds seeking ...

So, we figured we'd go to building N of St. Mary's Hospital, San Francisco. It's where the McAuley Institute, a teen residential psyche ward is. Learned about it when I was researching mental hospitals for a story. (http://www.stmarysmedicalcenter.o...

Since I am a terrible cook and she is a really good one, it has fallen on Mami to cook for the whole family. It may sound like fun, but if you think it goes on at least once a day almost every day since 17 years, it's a mind-boggling amount of work....

I like my coworkers for many reasons. For one thing, they sometimes assist me (deliberately or accidentally) with tasking. More importantly, they are also kind, interesting, and smart. Additionally, some of them are big and strong enough to change th...

Merci by Libris Craft December 29th, 2012 8:42 AM

I was drawn to this task for its simplicity and kindness. In the first week of my introduction to SF0, I had signed up for the task, and started contemplating whom I would thank. But for some reason, this task took me almost 6 months to finish. I w...

What should I be thanking someone for? Well, I do have a great deal of appreciation for those who take the time to read thank you signs. Especially if the sign is very difficult to read. Or those who take the time to read signs at all, especially ...
