I love happy street art.
My break from writing is walking. In a city like San Francisco, invariably I look up because there is so much Victorian mansion eye candy to take in.
But sometimes, my gaze catches some wonderful sidewalk doodle.
It's September—a good five months from Valentine's Day—and yet, I found this beautiful heart on the street. The author in me knew there was a story here. I wanted to know: who is Shirley? Who loves her so much that they would declare it so proudly, so lovingly, on this street? (Perhaps, where she lives… Cue My Fair Lady…)
Is Shirley tickled that her beloved has professed these feelings for the whole world to see?
Is she, too, in love with her professed beloved?
I hope so. Such random acts of shared joy are what keeps a relationship alive.
We all need to know someone is thinking of us. That someone adores us.
Go ahead. Grab a piece of chalk and declare your love. It will be appreciated.
I HEART U TOO,
