Zen Spot #65 -- Mindfulness, meditation and getting eaten by wet fangs February 10, 2018 00:05

An endless canvas

In North Philadelphia, at the corner of 5th and Cecil B. Moore Avenue, the owners of a long cinder block wall allow artists to paint and paint over. A different story is being told every time I drive by.

Thoughtful stories. Tragic stories. Personal stories. Colorful stories. Endless stories. Terrifying stories.

In space, no one can hear you scream

The mural above has been painted over. It was born and it was eaten. In between, hundreds of people stopped to marvel. Depicting one of the most terrifying theater experiences of my young lifetime, the movie Alien still brings chills. Everybody gets eaten by wet fangs.

Mindfulness near the wet fangs

I was alone when I photographed the mural. Minutes later, I could be found leaning against the wet fangs with my eyes closed, breathing, with no fear of being eaten.

Silly story.
