Sign of the times?



Not there the last time I walked through Wolf Lane I was delighted to come across another thought provoking, conversation inspiring work by JXD. You may remember the rifle toting Mary Poppins a little further down the lane.. here another poignant reminder of the 'peace versus war' times we live in today. Hope you had/are still having a fab weekend, happy Monday, take care and stay safe...

  7. Well, as John Aravosis at Americablog put it: Donald Trump has achieved in four months what the Soviets and Russians couldn’t accomplish in 68 years: Destroying the American-European alliance. German Chancellor Angela Merkel today said that after spending the last few days with other world leaders at the G7 summit, it’s clear that Europe is now on its own.

    Our orange-headed monster is raining down hell upon the world!

  15. A hard images but appropriate to the times. I notice the flower is a poppy. That's what's worn in the US on our Veteran's Day.

  16. I do remember the Mary Poppins. This one seems poignant with the red poppy turning into an instrument of destruction. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.

  17. I really admire some of the graffiti work in the city to be honest. I see quite a lot of the street art on the way to my portable storage business in the morning. It's quite poignant when you take the time to slow down and think about what each of these pieces mean in its own right. Some of the work is priceless when you think of the emotions they invoke.
