I keep hearing the phrase,”Welcome to Key West” as an answer to some of my silly questions about why things are this way or that. You have to go with the flow, slow down, and relax. Consuming alcohol and/or other vices can happen at any time of the day. No need to worry, things will get done.
My friend and mosaic partner Baily Cypress invited me to Key West to help her work on a mural that is on the side of her brother’s house. It is a pretty massive project which she intends to finish in a month’s time. So far it is just Baily, myself and Suzanne (a local artist) who have been doing the tiling. We have had some adorable neighborhood children putting up a fish here and there.
The site is situated on a dead end street next to a canal. There is a small foot and bike bridge over the canal the has a steady flow of people going by all day. Its nice to hear all the comments and talk with everyone. It really is a social place and I am loving all the interesting characters. I feel like I should be doing more but this Island reminds you that its ok to stop, head down the canal on a kayak, run along the beach, drink a mojito, listen to some music or just look at the stars.
