Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies ~ Aristotle #Wordless Wednesday #Chalk Your Walk

Wordless Wednesday – allow your photo(s) to tell the story.

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

    I’ve never seen that quote before. Interesting idea. I like the chalk drawings. Someone is quite artistic. How fun, eh?

      I’d never seen the quote before either Ally. I was trying to come up with a title to precede the words “#Wordless Wednesday. Decided to just find a short quote about love. I saw this and thought it does not get any more perfect to match the chalk art. I got to the Park that morning and saw people gathered around – wondered what happened? It was the talk of Loop #1 and lasted until the first of three days of torrential rain.

      Glad you liked this quote Martha. I’ve seen lots of chalk art in my time, mostly in the neighborhood, but this was the most elaborate. I tried my best to get the entire artwork in one photo then honed it on each person separately. This was a perfect quote to match the chalk art.

      I know Laurie – it’s not the usual type of chalk art I see in the ‘hood or even in the Park. It was impressive to see, much more so than I’ve captured in these shots. It was the talk of Loop #1. 🙂

      I know! Wow indeed! I got to the Park and over by where that exercise equipment is (not the playground area) is where this chalk art was located. There was a group of women standing around something as I rounded that corner. My first thought was “oh no – what happened?” Then I got closer and could see it. It was there and intact (no one stepped on it and smudged it which was polite) until we had that first torrential rain last Wednesday. It was wiped clean the next day!

      I thought so too Diane – it was pretty big chalk art too and took up most of the pathway. It was the talk of the Park that morning and when I went around the corner and saw a group of women standing and looking down, my first thought was “oh no – what happened?” I was relieved it was chalk art and not some type of accident or wounded/dead animal, etc. The last time there was a crowd like that it was a gathering of walkers watching the Mama turtle digging a hole to bury her eggs. That was pretty amazing.

        Yes, I had a great morning today – Blue Jay parents teaching their fledgings how to scam peanuts. Got lots of pictures, squirrels too.
        I have to add my miles Diane and will let you know. I bought a small calendar to keep track of the steps everyday, but then couldn’t find it for awhile, so I have info squirreled away in two places and have to add them all up.

      Glad you liked that Shelley. There was a crowd of walkers looking down at the path when I rounded the bend – my first thought was “now what happened?” What a doomsayer I am, but I was surprised to see what everyone was looking at. This was the most ornate chalk art I’ve ever seen.

      • Yes, I did. That was a cool drawing you saw! Remember when my daughter did a chalk art drawing? That whole event went virtual this year. I never got to see the drawings, but they were scattered around town at people’s homes and they sent the pictures in.

        Yes I remember – the day that you help organize that is for dementia awareness. Yes, you had taken photos of Sarah’s chalk drawing. This was quite a surprise in the Park. Most people who draw chalk artwork on there just print something – this person went all out. Well that’s good they still did the event virtually, though not the same I’m sure. I saw our State Fair was going to be virtual this year!

      • Thanks for remembering. It’s fun to see how creative people can be. Drawing with chalk on sidewalk is harder than it looks – it helps to have the right kind of chalk.
        It’ll be interesting to see how a virtual state fair looks? Our fair was cancelled, but they still had drive through food booths so everyone could get their fix of the unhealthy food. The things we encourage at a time when people should be exercising and eating properly to fight off diseases. But, that’s just my take on things ;-)!

        For the past few years I wanted to go to Heritage Park to see David Zinn, a local chalk artist, and it rained the day he was scheduled. I aimed to go this year, but he is not one of the featured entertainment at the Wednesday garden music and art this year. I just looked at his site and he now has a coffee-table book – hmm. That is something I’m not sure could be put into a book and better live. https://zinnart.com/
        I have never been this current State Fair which is now held at a big area which houses other non-farm-type events. It just came back after many years of being shut down due to lack of money. I went years ago, at a different venue though. They had one of those drive-thru fair food places in my City a few week ago. They set up shop and I saw the pics on the neighorhood Facebook forum, long lines and they ran out of some of the foods and drinks – people were pretty mad about it. We have a local fair in our City the last weekend in August and it was just cancelled yesterday.

      • Yes, I remember you telling me about David. He’s talented. I’m positive we will see more events pass on due to the virus. Perhaps November’s weather will be a revival month for events too?

        They have just scheduled a big Halloween event in a nearby park, in the same week they cancelled the annual outdoor concerts. The concerts begin in June and go to Labor Day – they had said they could go all August, but scrapped them. In the comments area,people said “why schedule the Zombie Apocalypse – it will only get canceled anyway.”
