Found this on the side of a big ol’ house in an alley.
The alley was narrow, so I shot mostly on an angle.
Love the colours.
Made the alley come alive!

Luxuriating in the Arts
“Rise Up” is a call. It’s an anthem to our better selves, for a better world. The song was fun to groove to in the 1980’s, but was anybody listening?

Here is the new version, with words. Is anybody listening now?
Here is the original infectious video.
“The enduring appeal of this song has inspired us to celebrate its legacy with a campaign to engage, celebrate and honour a new generation of social justice activists who are shaping the future.” – Lorraine Segato
I found this on my way to an appointment that I was already late for, because I found more art before this.
Chances of rescheduling the appointment – 100%
Chances of being in this spot again within the next year – almost nil.
Still, I shot when the sun came out briefly, instead of waiting for the cloud cover.
I love this, because the woman appears not young, nor old. Yet, she has gray(ing) hair. There is a lot to be said for embracing our natural selves.

How did I get so busy? I need to chill!
I’m going to take a couple of weeks to work more diligently on Charlotte’s Art Gown, finish reading a couple of books, including John Howell’s “The Last Drive”. (lovin’ it!)
Visit blogs and do some reblogs, do the dentist and doctor thing, prepare my taxes for the accountant, catch up on emails and recover from the sling and arrow of last week.
There’s more for sure, like earning some $$$ and working on my film daze humorous anecdotes. Perhaps a beaver mural would have worked better?
