52 Photos Project, Week Three: Street Art

I know, it is not exactly normal street art, but it seems close enough for me. We bought sidewalk chalk last September to write messages on my son's grave for his birthday and we've kept the chalk up there in a zip-lok bag ever since. I came to the cemetery alone the day before Mother's Day and left a message for my son. Silly? Maybe so. But I still did it.

  1. Not at all silly, and, even if it *was* silly, so frickin' what?

  2. I love it, Annie, and see nothing at all silly about it. In fact, I'm thinking of other possible ways to accomplish it. I talk to my dad and others in the family when I visit their graves. Why not something, in whatever fashion, left there in written form....

    1. Jim, my mother talks to her son (my brother) too! I've never quite been able to do that, at least, not yet. Right now, it just feels like there is a sense of presence, but no words. I had a dream the other night, he was a small distance from me and nodded and smiled his "I'm really all right, Mom" smile. That was a gift.

  4. Not at all silly. I write e-mails to my husband. Now *that's* silly. =) Your idea is much better!

    1. Oh, I don't know, Susan! Writing emails doesn't seem so silly to me! It seems like it would almost be like a journal written to him.
