Where in Duluth?

Free Hugs

Ok, this actually isn’t in Duluth, but I saw these today. And it’s pretty close to Duluth.

Free Compliments 1

Seeing these was surprisingly moving for me and gave me an opportunity to consider all of my relationships and re-evaluate my life direction. And, I mean that in a good way. Actually, what I mean is that compliments are so free, and pleasant, and often inspiring, and life-affirming and I don’t give them out enough. This was a great reminder and I hope the idea spreads.

I didn’t notice this until I uploaded the pictures, but the bulletin board message credits kindovermatter.com so these may be appearing elsewhere as well. Perhaps we’re on the edge of a movement.

I haven't an idea where this is yet, thanks for taking the time to post.   Our  culture tends, too often, to ruminates on the negative.  It makes me happy to see things sway to the other way.

I know, Paul, I thought of the same thing.  I also thought of the "Practice random acts of kindness and senseless beauty" slogan that first became popular  in my own college days.  Oh, was that a hint?

Judging by the other sheet of paper in the background selling textbooks, and the clue that it is almost-but-not-quite in Duluth, I'm going to guess UWS.

Excellent guess Sonya. It is at a institution of higher learning.  

You just took it in the wrong direction.  

These were on display at Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College which is in Cloquet, even though it's on what I always think of as the "Carlton" side  of the highway.
