Thriving Pod ~

Local Tucson artist Joe Pagac painted this striking whale family at the corner of Campbell and Grant (site of the old Bookmans that was torn down). He was trying to convey a sense of thriving under difficult circumstances -- pretty important now, wouldn't you agree?

Imperious and Terrifying and Plain old Annoyed ~

Viewing these magnificent owls from left to right I think that the one furthest left looks like it is wearing an elegant clock thrown around its shoulders. The middle owl gets the prize for "Best Terrifying Stare" and the one on the right...? Well, looks like it gets the "Best Grumpy Face" award. What do you think?

Tucson Rocks On!

My neighbors have long been painting inspirational rocks and placing them around the area on walls, in trees and gardens, and within the pocket parks. COVID-19 seemingly has prompted even more rocks to be placed to create a little moment of surprise and joy for anyone who spots one. In just the last week I have found these seven: "Believe," "Smile," "Love," "Kind," "Heart," "Polka Dots" and perhaps the most clever one of all - PIZZA SLICE! And one by one I am placing them for others to find. :)
