Every morning when I walk my dog these days, I notice so many lovely things I didn’t pay attention to before. It seemed important to share such creative, lovely artwork, before it dissolves in the next rain,, Sending my best wishes. 💜 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply What a lovely neighborhood. Did children draw on the sidewalks? Thanks for sharing it. LikeLiked by 2 people Reply Thank you so much for your thoughtful questions, Skywalker. Much of the neighborhood is lovely, although not all… On our daily walks, Pinto and I see so many creative chalk creations on the sidewalks. I would guess it’s something children have time to do now because they’re not in school. I wanted to take photos of a few today before the rains wash them away… Sending my best wishes to you, 💜 LikeLiked by 2 people Reply Smiling and wishing you a lovely week, Carol! 🙂 LikeLiked by 2 people Reply Thank you for your always kind and lovely comments, Bette. 💜 LikeLiked by 2 people Reply So glad to hear from you, Carol, and to see that you’re out walking around your neighborhood. Love the messages on the sidewalk 🙂 LikeLiked by 2 people Reply It’s so good to hear from you, too, Rosaliene. Teaching this past semester has been overwhelming. Only one-third of my students were able to complete the course before grades were due early this week. Even so, I was buried in papers that required me to read original sources to make sense of what they were trying to communicate. I am waiting to be buried once again when late papers arrive from the rest of the students! The only breaks have been my two daily walks with my dog. I let him choose which way to go on our first morning walk and only head back home when he begins to look tired. So often, I have wished I could take photos of sights we pass in our travels, but that’s not something he would tolerate. Yesterday, I decided to go out again to take a few photos. I wanted to capture some of the amazingly creative sidewalk art before it disappeared in the rain that was imminent! It felt important to show a different side of life in lock-down that may disappear when we’re all too busy to remember to take time to witness and/or create beauty, even if it’s only temporary and free for anyone to see.

I often wish I could take photos of it when I walk my dog, but that’s not possible. On the day I first saw these, though, I went back out to take photos before the promised and long-awaited rain, knowing they would disappear like many of the other beautiful chalk creations we saw in our travels around the neighborhood.
