I apologise to everyone for being AFK for the last week or so (Away From Keyboard) but it has been cuhrazy around here with lots of non-keyboard, non-internet related things to take care of.
I discovered one thing over the last week, however. That graffiti is there for a reason – it is not just visual noise or there to cover up broken bits on buildings. Graffiti is profound. It might even be prophetic. In addition, I am going to go so far as to say graffiti might just be my life coach.
I’ll show you what I mean.
There I was feeling all overwhelmed with too many jobs to do and not enough time to do them in and what did I see?
BUSY. An acknowledgement by some unknown artist of the stresses and strains of modern life. Sometimes just knowing other people feel the busy-ness too is enough to make you feel better.
There was so much to do I didn’t know where to begin.
And then I saw this -
The very best place to start.
And on a day where my sense of humour seemed to have deserted me I saw this. It makes no sense whatsoever, but it is hilarious. It completely cheered me up.
Knights riding prawns (or are they lobsters?) I have no idea what it means, but it is very funny.
Someone wrote Tickle Me Pink on the footpath near my house the other day. The laughs continued when I noticed another colour had been added -
I’ll need to go back in a few days and see if any other colours have been added.
Finally, I came across something very soothing, that made me smile.
Whose spirits wouldn’t soar at the sight of a gentle dragonfly?
So much meaning in street art.
That’s why graffiti is my life coach.
New month, new attitude.
