God Bless You

God Bless You

Graffiti can be awful, an insult, a desecration. See, for example, Nathalie's recent post about some sad destruction in Avignon

But it can also be innocent and charming. I did not see any American or European style tagging in Costa Rica (although I bet there is some in San Jose). These pictures are from the inner walls of the castle where the music school is located. Not just Billy Loves Erika but rather a bold declaration: Billy Says, I Love You Erika. The top one isn't even romantic. It says simply God Bless You. Go find that in London or New York. Banksy doesn't write such things. Another reason to love Costa Rica.

OH, BY  THE WAY, THIS IS STL DPB'S 2,500TH POST. Am I nuts or what?

Ah, your feed is as messed up as mine and your posts aren't updating in my reading list.

Banana heaven was a great pic yesterday. So you probably aren't nuts but bananas. This is rather sweet, yes. But it's still graffiti and I love Banksy.

Congratulations and thanks for your lovely comment today!

c'est la fête sur les Daily, ton 2500 posts et VDP qui fête ces 5 ans.

Félicitation Bob pour ce 2500th post, c'est toujours un plaisir de venir chez toi (même si en ce moment je suis moins présent, mais beaucoup de travail) et en plus d'avoir rencontrer la Bob'Familly.

J'en profite pour te souhaiter un bon weekend du SuperBowl ;o))

I love you, God bless you, now these are messages I don't mind too much seeing on walls. A far cry from what I saw in Avignon recently, as you kindly mentioned.

2500 posts is indeed an accomplishment, Bob. Bravo!

Jack said...

2500 posts is incredible, Bob. And, yes, you are nuts.

It is still graffiti and unnecessary, however sweet the sentiment.
