f is for five

five daily remembrances
  1. I am of the nature to grow old. There is no way to escape growing old.
  2. I am of the nature to have ill-health. There is no way to escape having ill-health.
  3. I am of the nature to die. There is no way to escape death.
  4. All that is dear to me, and everyone I love are of the nature to change. There is no way to escape being separated from them.
  5. My actions are my only true belongings. I cannot escape the consequences of my actions.
Thich Nhat Hanh (b. 1926) monk, teacher, poet, activist

Obviously NYC has some mural artists right up there with Diego Rivera. That's some awesome work!

I agree with Roy...that is awesome art!

Amazing art. How strange it is that this form of art was perhaps the very first (think of cave painting) and then seemed to vanish for centuries before returning as a form of popular protest.
