What is yours?

One day this structure will house a growing family or thriving business. Its many rooms will giggle with childhood jokes or clatter with stern conference calls. The inside will change with growth and the solid walls of the outside will weather with each storm and season. Passing neighbors will marvel at its Doric columns and […]


A craving for a slurpee or a random hunger for a bean and cheese burrito might guide you past a brightly painted garage with barely legible text and a looney character. If your eyes are open and your senses eager, then you may have spotted this act of creativity and uninhibited expression. Have you seen […]

the Many Faces of Art

art created by Moe in Carlsbad Art is capable of triggering intense emotions. The poised stretch of Degas’ ballet dancers showcase elegance and beauty. The bonnet capped child of Mary Cassatt ignites an inner flame of childhood innocence. Daumier pushed sorrow in his deep illustrations of the underprivileged and Delacroix painted the trepidation and horror […]

the Pole and the Palm

Once upon a time there lived a lonely tree. Its thick trunk rooted heavy palms to the crumbling pavement. Hot asphalt surrounded his base and an unforgiving wall inched closer with each passing season. Overheated cars nudged and dripped oil like a big brother teases. Pesky weeds whispered threats in his ears and overhead crows […]

Simply Creative

Improv Everywhere, located in New York City, causes scenes of chaos and joy in public places. These innocent acts entertain, as well as intrigue, the passing people, whom […]

A Starry Delight

Sometimes, in less frequented areas, weeds sprout and develop into sturdy plants with pulsating colors and swirling bodies. The gardener usually remains a mystery except for an occasional footprint. Cars speed and joggers bounce as the day passes. The weed remains visible, but hardly acknowledged. A light sprinkle of creativity, fallowed by a ray of […]
