Art is everywhere!

Reprise

I have my own rules, so street art comes on Sunday. Don’t ask me why. It’s just the way it is. Some rules are made to be broken. And this one is one of them. I couldn’t wait! The week has been long and exhausting. I was counting the minutes to get home. Literally. And then… I saw it!
A huge wall painted with colourful flowers and fearless animals. Who could have guessed? In a parking lot. Yes, in the garden supply store car park. And I don’t even have a house with a garden. I live in an apartment with a tiny little balcony. I presume my eyes (well, my left eye) was meant to see this beauty just before the week ends.
I must thank my son because every Friday he goes to kayak and I pick him up before the sun sets. Usually, the meeting place is at the beach but this time I found myself at this empty parking.
I’m blessed and grateful. Open your eyes. Seize the day. Always.

Mar adentro

El mar es el vehículo de una existencia prodigiosa y sobrenatural. Es movimiento y amor, es el infinito hecho vida.

Jules Verne

El mar es la gran reserva de la naturaleza. El mundo, por así decirlo, comenzó en el mar, y quién sabe si no terminará en él.

Street art

If it takes more than 5 minutes, it’s not graffiti.

I laugh at the way some people think graffiti is all selfish tagging and vandalism. Thoughtful street art is like good fiction – it speaks out on behalf of everyone, for us all to see.

People say graffiti is ugly, irresponsible and childish… but that’s only if it’s done properly.

Suivre la marée

Reprise

Je suis comme cette branche sur la plage
Je vis au gré des marées
Sans ancrages ni attaches
La vie est douce et j’en profite
Je flâne, je rêve, je divague
Emballéee par les vagues.

I don’t know if street art ever really works indoors. If you domesticate an animal, it goes from being wild and free to sterile, fat and sleepy. So maybe the art should stay outside.

Été IX

La lamière de cette fin d’été
est comme un couteau
je quitte la maison.

c’est la fin de l’été.

The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.
