Abbot Kinney Boulevard has become mostly avoidable for longtime Venice residents, but there are still some pretty great things about it, including the above bleeding hearts mural, the #Lovewall. People from all over the globe come to Venice, and an awful lot of them stop to take a photo in front of this wall painted by jgoldcrown.
A brief stroll away is a Greg Mike mural, Bear Witness, that has a kind of scary bear, but its bark is one of love. I think that's some pretty good imagery for these times. Turn it all into love, however you can. It's worth a shot, anyway. Love is such a loaded word, but we sure do need all of it that we can get. We can do better.
