the art project www.learningtoloveyoumore.com is great, but this book is even more amazing because the two artists that give the assignments studied each of the over 5000 entries they received over the past 5 years and picked the most challenging, heartbreaking, and hilarious ones to present.
my favorite assignments are the ones that turn out to be the most personal and honest:
assignment 52: write the phone call you wish you could have
assignment 53: give advice to yourself in the past
the ones about interviewing someone who experienced war were pretty interesting too.
assignment 30: take a picture of strangers holding hands.
assignment 42: list 5 events from 1984
this book is awesome. the website is still accepting entries and still giving new assignments randomly.
