One remarkable thing about ephemeral art (that means art that is short lived or fleeting), is that it supports living in harmony with nature. Seasons change, leaves turn color, flowers bloom and wither. Life is always in a state of transition. The temporary nature of street art with chalk demands attention now, while it lasts. Like Japanese sand and rock gardens, sand painting, ice sculpting, or pumpkin carving, the art is on display only for a fleeting moment in time. Life goes on, flow with it. Create something beautiful, then let it go. Then create something beautiful again. Don’t try to stop the river, move with it. Live life to its fullest, enjoy, then repeat.
