Thursday, I am grateful...

...for notes carved into tables. Normally, I'm not a fan of graffiti. I don't even care for public artwork that consists of spray paint and a stencil (although, I saw a wonderful one on the sidewalk recently that said - "You're beautiful" - it made me smile, I will get a photo of that soon!).

I saw this carving on a picnic table bench last week. It made me smile. Obviously, Eric is French. It is simple and it is innocent. I appreciate that. I like to imagine that Eric was with a girl, probably nervous and fidgety. In the middle of their seemingly awkward silence, he took out his knife or keys and carved this into the table. Perhaps, he drops by this table and thinks back on this girl from time to time.
