this is taken from artist Susan O'Malley's project called "Community Advice" where she asked people "what advice would you give your 8-year old self?" along with "what advice would you give your 80-year old self?" from their responses she created posters, one reading - don't ever lie, and others - don't pull people's hair and you've had a long wonderful life - good job.
i love this idea. i might say to my 8 year old self something like - keep drawing! and maybe to the 80 year old me - all that matters is love. or maybe that should be reversed. what would you say to your 8 and 80 year old self?
