Chalk-full o’ wisdom.


The chalk artists were at it again – but this time, it was along the perimeter path at Council Point Park, not on the City sidewalks in the ‘hood.

Yesterday, I took photos of these bursts of creativity mingled with a little wisdom, because this morning’s anticipated rain would render them watery pastel dribbles by the next time I returned to the Park.

As I walked along the trail, the first messages were just scrawls identifying who was there, kind of a modern twist on “Kilroy was here” …

dana and may wuz here

… and then, the drawings got a little more creative, and even insightful.

The sunshine, which is shown above, was the first drawing, and then there were two more, all guaranteed to keep you grounded.

be humble

keep your head up

I took out the camera as I knew these little nuggets would be the subject of my next blog post.

A few words of wisdom while you’re walking is the perfect way to start your day.


About Linda Schaub

This is my first blog and I enjoy writing each and every post immensely. I started a walking regimen in 2011 and decided to create a blog as a means of memorializing the people, places and things I see on my daily walks. I have always enjoyed people watching, and so my blog is peppered with folks I meet, or reflections of characters I have known through the years. Often something piques my interest, or evokes a pleasant memory from my memory bank, so this becomes a “slice o’ life” blog post that day. I respect and appreciate nature and my interaction with Mother Nature’s gifts is also a common theme. Sometimes the most-ordinary items become fodder for points to ponder over and touch upon. My career has been in the legal field and I have been a legal secretary for four decades, primarily working in downtown Detroit, and now working from my home. I graduated from Wayne State University with a degree in print journalism in 1978, though I’ve never worked in that field. I like to think this blog is the writer in me finally emerging!! Walking and writing have met and shaken hands and the creative juices are flowing once again in Walkin’, Writin’, Wit & Whimsy – hope you think so too. - Linda Schaub

      Ann Marie – no wonder you enjoyed these chalk drawings so much if you do them yourself. You have to send me photos of your creations sometime – I have used other chalk drawings in the past for my blogs. These were really inspirational.

    I like the words that were scrawled on the sidewalk. They were very thought provoking.
