Come Out & Play ... Let's Play In The Street Again


The house I lived the longest in as a child had the gift of time on it's side. Located just a few blocks from the downtown district of our community, our little street kept (and still keeps) a red brick road.
The nostalgia I have for growing up under expansive oak trees and on the ripple-ly, dipple-ly brick road led me to buying my little chateau under the oaks and paving my own driveway and walkways out of brick today.
But the street I live on now, long ago went from dirt to pavement....laying a path for new experiences for the child in me.
For thirty cents, I picked up the most entertaining twelve pack a girl could possibly scoop up. There were reds, blues, purples, yellows, greens, pinks and more.
Last weeks message, left at the four way stop was 'Stop In the Name of Love.'
This weeks words were 'Let the Love Light Shine On'

Oh....How much fun to play in the streets again!

Mel said...

A gal after my own heart....

Stop in the name of love....*snickering*

Picture a car filled of grownups in L.A. bursting into song whenever a stop sign was honoured--you're picturing giggling sisters at work.

Oh, you warmed my heart this morning!

((((((((((( SLB )))))))))))))))

Orhan...it was sooooo much fun! Might I suggest that you meet me in the streets at midnight? ;)

Wreggie....lol, I am truly reaping the benefits now of something I missed out on as a kid...

Singleton....I would love to! Meet you in the middle of the road nect week-end sister, no spray paint, just chalk ;)

Mel....Hahahha, of course I thought of you time and time again while doodling these! Now, I see why you enjoy them so much! Fun Stuff! The midnight passerbys were awesome...some stopping, some laughing, some shooting my the peace sign and one even yelled out the window 'smoke more dope!' and I just cracked up...of course, seeming high just comes naturally for some of us!

LOL, I like how we've both been scribbling on the sidewalks lately! :) You are a much better artist than myself, however. And I'm intrigued with the red brick road-how fun must that have been?? ~Love, peace~
