This past summer, my friend Cason Suggs and I decided to spend a day chalking Washington High’s back parking lot. We each brought sidewalk chalk left over from the good ol’ days, turned up some music, and got to work.
Being creative on such a big canvas was cool, but the best part of the whole experience was that our art lasted for about a week before it rained; we actually went back a couple times in the following days just to look at it. We thought chalking would be a fun, summery thing to do outside for a couple hours, but it ended up being so much more than that for me.
Allowing yourself to be a kid again is the most rejuvenating thing you can do. What did you enjoy? Did you play wiffle ball in your front yard? Roller skate with your friends? Run around in the sprinkler? Catch fireflies and keep them in a jar? Whatever it was, don’t think you can’t do it now because you’re “too old.” Get outside and enjoy being a kid. I promise you won’t regret it.
Catch ya later,
