You Are Wonderful

We are living in on the top floor of a multistory building, which means we are often using the elevator and spend the longest time in it. Just like the building, the elevator is neither pretty, nor very welcoming. I guess, in general elevators are usually not the nicest places.

Often on my way up or down, I am thinking of how the elevator is actually like a life-vein of the building, moving tenants and their guests up and down. And it is a central, small space which almost all occupants share and use on a regular basis. It is a pity that it is so bland and uninspiring.

I decided to change that…

The door is about to close...

Du (ja – DU!) bist wunderbar!  ( You (yes- YOU) are wonderful! )

As usual I made sure that my intervention is not permanent or damaging somebody else’s property and it can easily be removed 😉
