Chalk Bombing

 

 

Well, I’ve been at it again. We zoomed down to the city at the end of the day and after a good bit of climbing and swinging on the new rope playground, I set to work with a bunch of coloured chalks. It was great to notice that I was not the only ‘grown-up’ getting up to monkey business in the park. The rope playground is very cool, and shaped like a ship, with rigging. Great place to bring grandparents to stretch their legs and have a good work-out.

There are a number of interesting spots that could be good for a Meetup outdoors, for chalk bombing, or colouring in, or even a musical get-together. Try http://www.meetup.com/Tauranga-Healthy-Creative-Minds-Meetup and register your interest, if you are in the area. Or setup a group locally!

Beach art fascinates me, and I found some amazing stuff on Pinterest, so if you’d like to take a look, just scroll down a bit through the art I like, and you’ll find a couple of 3D Chalk Artists, and also a tonne of beach sculptures, sand art, etc. http://www.pinterest.com/anaserat/art-i-like/

(Just joined up with Pinterest today – it’s great!)

Show me your chalk bombing pics! Or perhaps, chalk bombing poems?

Grieving

Tears can open the door
to wake the mind

Crying pulls out memories
like an excited two year old
pulling dress-ups from a box

Wailing
perhaps it will move me
from a silent scream
into a sobbing anger
drowned in grief.

Laughing, giggling, 400 times a day?

Have you had your share of giggles today?

Here’s a Youth Radio show I found while scouting out SoundCloud. I’m playing it in the background while I work.

I like the way Joy is described as being different from Happy-ness. Not just putting on a happy face.

Show us the joy…..
