Has anyone seen the new wheelchair symbol? The symbol was not designed by or for the City, it actually began in 2009 as a guerrilla defacement project. The new symbol will replace the outdated International Symbol of Access (white-on-blue icon of a figure seated in a wheelchair).

Why don’t you…
… use a gigantic shell instead of a bucket to ice your champagne?
… cover a big cork bulletin board in bright pink felt, banded with bamboo, and pin with colored thumb-tacks all your various enthusiasms as your life varies from week to week?
… tie an enormous bunch of silver balloons on the foot of your child’s bed on Christmas Eve?
… paint a map of the world on all four walls of your boys’ nursery so they won’t grow up with a provincial point of view?
… tie black tulle bows on your wrists?
And here are some of the more extravagant ones, inspiring nonetheless.
Why don’t you…
… own, as does one extremely smart woman, twelve diamond roses of all sizes?
… bring back from Central Europe a huge white baroque porcelain stove to stand in your front hall?
… wear violet velvet mittens with everything?
… have an elk-hide trunk for the back of your car? Hermès of Paris will make this.
…wear, like the Duchess of Kent, three enormous diamond stars arranged in your hair in front?
…have a room done up in every color green? This will take months, years, to collect, but it will be delightful—a melange of plants, green glass, green porcelains, and furniture covered in sad greens, gay greens, clear, faded, and poison greens?

I urge you to please notice when you are happy, and exclaim or murmur or think at some point “If this isn’t nice I don’t know what is.”
