My family just got back from a wonderful trip to New Orleans. We had a blast! The music, food, art, and whimsical, carefree attitude of that city are awesome. Creativity is almost expected there. It was inspiring. The weather was perfect, and we were totally blessed.
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.”
