Sidewalk Messages

Back in the USA and one of the immediate thoughts that came to mind as I made my way to the local Internet cafe to get some work done is that walking in suburbia isn’t nearly as relaxing as strolling down the Mexican beach. Too many cars, too many people and no sand squishing between your toes. Then I ran upon the following message written on the sidewalk:

sidewalk chalk message

sidewalk smile

I know that it wasn’t written for me, but I sure enjoyed reading it and realized that no matter where you happen to be, you decide to make the day as positive and productive as you want to.

I don’t know who left the message, but I’d like to thank them for doing so. I’ve also decided that I’m going to go out and buy myself a package of sidewalk chalk to return the favor for someone else 🙂

  1. i LOVE sidewalk chalk art! Very nice.

    This was one of my kid’s favorite toys when they were younger. We’d wile away entire afternoons sitting in the driveway creating ‘greetings’ for their daddy when he’d drive in from work later in the day.

    Good that you want to pay it forward.
