Spring Sidewalk Philosophy = Respite and Renewal

It is May 2015. Suddenly the sidewalk philosopher is at work in my neighborhood.

My High School Geometry and Algebra teacher often wrote on the board  “Think”.

I can still hear her voice so many years later.

When I see the apple blossoms of spring, hope renews.

In the fall, I will be apple picking once again.

The first time I saw sidewalk philosophy was in the beautiful city of Paris in 2006.  In french the word for love was painted on the sidewalk.  At dusk, I took a photo of this word.

“AMOUR”

Keep love in your heart and the palms of your hands.
