The news is so dire right now, and it bombards us constantly. Bike riding helps. Passing art like this reminds me that beauty abounds and the human spirit is capable of so much good.
Art matters. Consider expressing yourself through any type of art, or supporting those who do. You are needed. (See Come Now the Artists.)
If you like street murals, you may enjoy my Art of Bike Riding album. If you like art in all forms, check out my younger daughter’s recently-released second album. (I give you the Amazon link, but it’s also available on iTunes, Spotify, etc.) It’s really beautiful — I like to listen to it while planting seeds, which they say is the ultimate act of faith in the future (which I still have).
