#FOWC: [Cleveland’s ] Wall [Murals]

This is one of my most favorite aspects of my city! The artwork, surely some graffiti but respectfully well done, is magnificent! It’s scattered throughout downtown Cleveland, Ohio City, Parma, and several other suburbs. They are marvelous, absolutely worth a visit here.

Here an article from Cleveland Magazine🙂

Here’s a few additions pictures:

    What If

    My best friend gave me the best advice He said each day’s a gift and not a given right Leave no stone unturned, leave your fears behind And try to take the path less traveled by That first step you take is the longest stride
    If today was your last day And tomorrow was too late Could you say goodbye to yesterday? Would you live each moment like your last? Leave old pictures in the past Donate every dime you have? If today was your last day (If today was your last day)
    Against the grain should be a way of life What’s worth the prize is always worth the fight Every second counts ’cause there’s no second try So live like you’ll never live it twice Don’t take the free ride in your own life
    If today was your last day And tomorrow was too late Could you say goodbye to yesterday? Would you live each moment like your last? Leave old pictures in the past Donate every dime you have? Would you call old friends you never see? Reminisce old memories Would you forgive your enemies? Would you find that one you’re dreamin’ of? Swear up and down to God above That you finally fall in love If today was your last day
    If today was your last day Would you make your mark by mending a broken heart? You know it’s never too late to shoot for the stars Regardless of who you are So do whatever it takes Cause you can’t rewind a moment in this life Let nothin’ stand in your way Cause the hands of time are never on your side
    If today was your last day And tomorrow was too late Could you say goodbye to yesterday? Would you live each moment like your last? Leave old pictures in the past Donate every dime you have? Would you call old friends you never see? Reminisce old memories Would you forgive your enemies? Would you find that one you’re dreamin’ of? Swear up and down to God above That you finally fall in love If today was your last day

    #CFFC: Places People Live #6

    Theme: Places People Live

    I live in the hugs of my girls,

    In the coffee shop I visit, and

    The memories with friends.

    I live in the parks I walk,

    In the tears that fall,

    In all my beginnings, and every end.

    I live in the words I speak, in the

    Truths of my life, in the stories I tell.

    I live from the love I give, the kindness

    Shared, and within hearts who knew me well.

    I am me in this life, I am

    Just the Human form.

    In the after years, though,

    the marvelous thing,

    I’ll live forever more.

    #FOWC: Abstract

    I have always loved the abstract in the art community! It leaves the doors wide open for expression and interpretation 💙💕 I recently discovered Jack Vanzet.

    Jack Vanzet is a creative director and multidisciplinary artist from Melbourne, Australia who works in the fields of graphic design, art direction, typography, illustration and branding. He has worked with a variety of different agencies and clients including Sony, Tumblr, EMI, Warner Music, Vice Magazine and Universal Music Group and many more. {source of quote linked via hyperlinked}

    I LOVE his color choices!!! This image tells me about a shark that just caught his lunch.

    Again, this is glorious simply because of the color choices. They are vibrant and defined. This image tells me about Starburst candy and the excitement of the delicious flavors.

    Lastly, this astonishing abstract piece reminds me of space. The stars are shining and the mixture of particles appear colorful. It has a taste of adventure, to me.

    Ummm?

    This afternoon, I was driving home, with my two daughters.

    As I sat at a red light, (by the way, I’ve stopped and waited for stop signs to turn green as well. Brandy’s Not So Bright Chronicals might be in the works!) I noticed a flag hanging on a porch.

    Typically, this would be no big deal. Today, along with the flag, stood three naked full body size manikins!!! I had to laugh because Starship’s melody began singing in my head.

    Maybe they were declaring unstoppable love?!

    God, Have Mercy

    I hear music all the time. Songs from generations ago, and stuff that’s on the radio today. I’ve heard such a vast mix of genres, artists, and types of music.

    It’s been my diary, my best friend, my voice, and my blanket of safety. Anytime I needed healing, I replied on music to work it’s magic… And it ALWAYS prevailed.

    But, as years passed, and Ive grown from a child to a young adult… And a young and inexperienced foolish newly wed, to this wise and refined concept of beauty, I’ve listened to old familiar songs and heard them for a very first time.

    Lately, as if something greater is drawing me nearer, I’ve become obsessed with one particular song.

    The artist’s voice caught my attention. The beat of the song is fast paced, and almost angelic.

    But, what does Kyrie mean? What was the inspiration for this moment in my life, when a song steals my attention as if trying to tell me something.

    So, I looked it up:

    Kyrie- Mr Mister * You can listen to it here*

    The wind blows hard against this mountain side, across the sea into my soul
    It reaches into where I cannot hide, setting my feet upon the road

    My heart is old, it holds my memories, my body burns a gemlike flame
    Somewhere between the soul and soft machine, is where I find myself again

    Kyrie eleison, down the road that I must travel
    Kyrie eleison, through the darkness of the night
    Kyrie eleison, where I’m going will you follow
    Kyrie eleison, on a highway in the light

    When I was young I thought of growing old, of what my life would mean to me
    Would I have followed down my chosen road, or only wished what I could be

    Kyrie eleison, down the road that I must travel
    Kyrie eleison, through the darkness of the night
    Kyrie eleison, where I’m going will you follow
    Kyrie eleison, on a highway in the light

    #FF: Re-humanizing Cafe

    FA06DF90-C9C9-4A65-8D74-C762B4EEABCD

    Photo Prompt ©️Dale Rogerson

    This patio welcomed every passerby. The funny part is, NYC natives tell the same story: after a brief stay, every resident reroutes ship to sail this street as often as possible. Ezra did just that. Angelina’s Sip & Sweets was the best, hands down.

    The light’s collapsed upon an atmosphere of adventure, wonder and, yet, peace. Graduating from year to year, the coffee shop gained the best preposterous stories; satisfying the craze of so many ill-fuctioning businessmen.

    Ezra sheepishly chuckled. In her 29 years, she’s, occasionally,  relied on her hot mocha latte to survived work with a horrendous hangover. Whoops!


    Every Friday, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields- Addicted to Purple encourages writers to challenge him/herself with a Photo Prompt and literary genre. You can read more about it but clicking her name, above.

    You are Enough

    You are the author of your story. You decide when chapters are over and how they end. You decide who stays and who fades, what details matter and which do not, what points deserve recognition and which are insignificant. The pen is in your hand. The story is yours: choices, thoughts, storyline, characters and ending  .. What will it say? Who will you be?  Embrace the creativity that life is and the freedom that you’ve been given 😘💜🐢

    I’ve Just Discovered Him

    I don’t do life without laughter!

    I just can’t; especially with society’s pms’ing

    Offended nonsense these days.

    Tonight, I REALLY needed my endorphins! (And

    My scale was already threatening me to stay away from my KitKats)

    Surfing Netflix, I came across this pale, odd, and homosexual looking fella. His name is Daniel Sloss!

    “Why Not?!”, I said to myself… BEST DECISION IVE MADE TODAY! 😂😂😂😂

    Now, he’s a bit twisted… But all of humor is, even in the slightest. He has colorful language ( which I usually can’t stand!).

    He’s genuinely funny! His subject matter is real, raw, and current. It’s honest and he hits every angle about all the possible awkward situations within comedy! Homosexuality, offending others, Vegans, Art…

    I can’t believe I’ve never heard of him before. If you’re open minded and would enjoy a night of laughter (as if anyone would say Nah, I’d rather sit here and be a sour ass.), I HIGHLY recommend Daniel Sloss:)

    Here’s a sample😂😂😂

    Daniel Sloss

    #FF: Little Dreamy

    Photo Prompt ©️Gah Learner

    James sat at his work desk, gazing up at the moon. He has always loved it, mesmerized by its size and endless beauty. Tonight, it looked a bit more dreamy.

    At the coffee shop, last week,  he accidently ran into a stunning business woman. By doing so, her latte spilt all over her red blouse. Apologethically, he snatched some napkins and handed them to her, mortified to make eye contact. She was sincere and understanding, but in to much of a hurry to talk.

    Before James could ask for her number, she was out the door.

    Art & Coffee ☕️

    This combination is magnificent! Both are platforms for strangers to become friends, artists to learn from one another, and life to feel more enriched! Whether it’s an art gallery in New York City, a small town Café, a display of Iron pieces on a Saturday afternoon , or a Sunday morning coffee date, these two elements add a sweetness to the cup of life:D
