Aveiro – Portugal

Campos de Aveiro,
Manchas verdes de arroz,
E a vela dum barco moliceiro,
Que um pirata ali pôs.
A servir de moldura
O velho mar cansado;
E o céu alto a descer e a ter fundura
Na quilha dum arado.

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.

Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.

Rabindranath Tagore

Clouds in the sky very much resembles the thoughts in our minds! Both changes perpetually from one second to another!

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.

Money money money…

A wise man should have money in his head, but not in his heart.

If I could say it in words there would be no reason to paint.

Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.

Aveiro – Portugal

Flor a sorrir
Na ria de Aveiro:
Singela e branca vela
Dum barco moliceiro.
Canção a soar
Na ria de Aveiro:
Branda aragem a soprar
Dum barco moliceiro
