Heal the World

On our way to the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition we passed by an artist called Singh who was starting to do a chalk painting on a side walk square across from the Eaton Center. He was using a small colour picture clipped from a magazine for a reference.

On our way back later in the day, we passed that way again and a small crowd of admirers had gathered around him. His painting was beautifully done; but I couldn't help but think what a shame that it was so fleeting and temporary in nature. It occured to me that in comparison, we spend an enormous amount of time making our quilts but they often last for generations.

We went by a few days later and the painting had almost disappeared--people were walking and riding their bikes over it. I felt sad.

One of my favourite Micheal Jackson songs is Heal the World. It has such an important message presented in such a beautiful way. What a talented person he was!
