You Are Beautiful

I just finished reading The Five People That You Meet in Heaven and this quote really popped out at me. "Silence was his escape, but silence is rarely a refuge. His thoughts still haunt him."
That, in turn, reminded me of Thoreau's quote, "the mass of men lead lives of silent desperation."
This is why I love street art- selfless acts of beauty, hoping to affect strangers in a positive way. It seems that a happy thought, or a smile- i know the world could use more of them- is what is hoped to be inspired. Sometimes the walls speak to you. These are photos of random graffiti in San Diego.
