101/ #68 - Sidewalk chalk
Without art, the crudeness of reality would make the world unbearable. ~George Bernard Shaw
I almost forgot to mention that I had the chance to do some sidewalk chalk art over the weekend. We went to a friends house on Saturday night, more his friends than mine, and the kids brought out the chalk to color the concrete patio. I didn't draw anything important, a cat and a baby and butterfly. But it was fun, regardless.
Although I had a good time I was slightly torn. Between standing with my husband who was visiting with all the guys gathered around the grill or all the mothers who were gathered around their children. I was naturally drawn to the mothers and the kids. I wanted to watch the kids too, but I felt a little self-conscious doing it when I had no kids of my own to tend.
