Sharing Graffiti is Caring
December 10, 2012 § 3 Comments
I enjoy graffiti. Wouldn’t call myself an expert by any stretch, but if I see it and aren’t in a hurry to get anywhere, I stop and observe.
If I were into breaking the law, I would be all over it. But I hate getting in trouble. Anyway. I have a new job, in which I drive all over the downtown area. I’ve seen a lot of people’s art.
I adore the idea of it. A person, leaving a portion of themselves out there for the world to find. Even more so when it is encouraging – sharing a love message with the world. Much better than sharing bad 80’s hair. Why am I out of Aqua Net?
I hope to leave uplifting things for everyone to find. My favorite poem is “When Death Comes” by Mary Oliver and the greatest lines (to me) are:
When it’s over, I want to say: all my life
I was a bride married to amazement.
I was a bridegroom, taking the world into my arms.
What do you want to leave behind?
