We had our second chalk event October 2nd, and had a wonderful time coloring up the sidewalks around Buildings C and A. The weather was gorgeous, we had lots of beautiful chalk and many creative hands. I only overheard one comment that was meant to be dismissive, when a gent walked past with his friends and sniffed “Don’t they have anything better to do?”
Actually, no, we don’t. There’s nothing better than peacefully gathering for a little joyful creative expression. It gives your eyes, brain, hands and imagination an energizing workout. Plus you get fresh air, sunshine, and fun that either reminds you of childhood playtime or gives you a bit of it to remember some other time if you didn’t get it then. All that in a stick of chalk!
