Are you old enough to remember the TV show "Please Don't Eat The Daisies"? It came out the year I was born, 1965. I miss family oriented shows with happy endings. I'm just not as obsessed with forensics and crime drama as the rest of the world seems to be.
Very little is needed to make a happy life. It is all within yourself, in your way of thinking. ~Marcus Aurelius
I've seen BB King perform live twice. He really is the King of the Blues!
"The blues is about life. Yeah it's about heartache and hurt, but it's about joys and happiness and all the things that happen in life. It's about truth. That's why people like it when they give it a chance." ~B.B. King
This Saturday, March 7th is Artwalk in Conway. Pop's Glass is doing an Eco art exhibit, featuring, in part, my work. Check it out if you are able! I'll be in Columbia doing some required continuing education.
On the tombstone of Robert Frost was written: "He had a lover's quarrel with the world." This is something that could just as easily been written as a memorial to Jesus. Both cared for others, and knew the importance of the road less travelled.
I once read about a woman seeing a message sprawled on a Paris sidewalk. It said, "The city of Paris is full of beautiful mysteries, and you are one of them." I never forgot that story. I began to think how wonderful it would be to spread love and joy by writing beautiful messages on sidewalks with chalk. That idea has evolved into the original poetry I often include on my art, and is the reason I call myself “The Sidewalk Chalk Prophet.”
