You Guys Wait Right Here…


Walking through San Francisco on a recent trip we saw this wall art on the side of a building, I think it was either a small cafe or a bar.  Whichever, the artist purposely positioned his well-behaved subjects in their patient wait for their companion, leashes wrapped about a pipe extending through the wall.  These little guys look so real, so patient as they sit, waiting, the one looking straight at the viewers, head a bit tilted as though curious as to why we’ve stopped and are looking, the attention of the other being drawn by something happening to his left — car, people, other dogs? One turns instinctively to see what is there and then turns back, feeling just a bit silly because, after all, it’s just a painting.  The artist has carefully extended the sidewalk up onto the wall so his buddies can sit on the sidewalk rather than the rough brick of the wall– very thoughtful.  No artist signature of course, just his little friends…  waiting…      waiting….

About Karmen

I'm just someone who loves this beautiful earth. I feel that human beings may be writing their own final chapter by the general disregard for the natural systems and unwillingness to adapt to the conditions of our own creation. I believe that God created this world and everything in it, both living and nonliving. I also believe that he expects us to treat it well, to treat it with the same love and respect as He had for it during the creation. The commandment was not only to "multiply" but also to "replenish the earth." We can do better.
