One of the things I love about downtown is the various graffiti its acquired over the years. Although I dont think I would ever “tag” anything myself, I love the idea of leaving your mark on the world. Its like claiming a piece of the town as your own, however unethical it may be. I have a few books in my library specifically on the subject of Graffiti around the world and have always been fascinated by the talent in some of these brilliant artists. Now obviously this is no Bansky masterpiece by any means, but I still enjoy it, especially with it being a Monte Python piece! I cant help but to think of the outrageously humorous Silly Walk in the various Python skits (Here), and wonder how many have been inspired by this tag to silly walk across the street. Its a brief reminder to not take life to seriously. I will be forever intrigued and inspired by those who are bold enough to leave their marks on society.
Are you leaving your mark?
