It's the Friday of a long President's Day (remember when that was thought of as honorable?) weekend, and I think everyone is in the mood to blow off a little steam ... or just RELAX. I was thinking just this while walking down Brooks Avenue, taking a different route just for the fun of it. I'm glad I did, because I needed to see this fence mural of Venice Dennis (Hopper) reaching out to give us all a big hug (ignoring his odd Republican bent, of course).
The stencil piece by street artist FCK (Kampah) also honors the long African History of this Oakwood neighborhood street. I love it. I needed it.
Big Venice Dennis hugs to this whole crazy, mixed up country as we head off to celebrate, if nothing else, Freedom. Easy Rider style.
