 “We are all a little weird and life’s a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall into mutual weirdness and call it love.”– Unknown 

Oh how I love to see bright urban art in the most dank, dreary places. Under train viaducts here in Chicago usually have some good stuff…but it is everywhere if you keep your eyes and mind open. I find it all simply beautiful. This was a cute school of colorful freaky little characters.

When I saw this bright cheery crew on the wall from afar, they seemed to call out to me….”Hey look at us…we are happy and free just to be!”   Looking at how this once blank, stain filled concrete wall came alive was magical and made me smile.

Urban artist seem to buck the usual artistic scene…aka galleries and provide public art for us all to enjoy. They don’t cave or conform…they’re rebels for their passion. It is a good lesson to learn from the crew in the picture… Be who you were created to be…not what others might think you should be. I guess I have always danced to the beat of my own drum and as I season it just gets more fun to be who I am…just like I’m supposed to be. I love to  live outside the box and I celebrate that in others.

It’s ok to be weird…in fact it is what makes us all way cooler then we even imagine we are. It is the feeling of being free…unchained from others expectations of who we should be…. that is the essence of a joy filled life. Bust out your “weirdness” and show it some love!

  1. That’s why I go to Burning Man, weirdos being weird.

    I have seen your quote attributed to Dr. Seuss, which certainly seems appropriate.
