One morning recently, I decided I wanted to walk someplace different, than my usual morning meander in the swamp. I stopped at a county park. The trail in the park was unpleasant, poorly maintained with lots of exposed tree roots to trip over, lots of bugs, I am still scratching. Along one side was a paved trail. For about 500 feet there were signs with pages from a children's book, illustrating the flora and fauna along the trail, a little farther along there was a small art installation. A dozen or so small sculptures, I think made by children, secured in place, with placards encouraging you to find all of them.
These are odd times. Have a little fun along the way, create ways for others to have a little fun along the way, things we all need to do.
Someone should let Sassybear know about this posting.
The trail may have been a bit rough but at least you saw some different things.ReplyDelete

Oh, what I wouldn't give to see a Lego giraffe in its natural habitat.ReplyDelete

You can find the coolest things just by opening your eyes and looking around.ReplyDelete
All around us, I think people are going out of their way right now to add a little joy to life. I hope they remember to do that November 3rd.Delete
I've been dealing with a wee bit of orange sky, sooty air, stuck in the house for six months ennui. This post, and that little giraffe, brought me joy. The sound of the turkeys gobbling this morning, actually made me happy. I think I'll pull out all the stops and dust my house, well at least remove that now gray cobweb off of the wall.ReplyDelete
It will all be okay, one cobweb at a timeDelete
Hopefully, all kinds of new ideas and new art will come out of this long nightmare.ReplyDelete
I have learned a few things I won’t forgetDelete
If more did this - the world would be a better place for it.ReplyDelete
