I love murals and street art. If you like murals or have a mural you'd like to post, this meme is for you. Just follow the Linky steps below. Once you start looking you will find murals everywhere. The "Monday Mural" meme goes live on Monday at 12,01AM, Perth,Western Australian time. Be sure to link back to this blog and visit your fellow posters. Looking forward to your mural finds this week. Thanks, Sami.
This interactive mural was painted by Miss Polly for the first ever Darwin Street Art Festival in 2017, in Austin Lane in the city centre. She is the same artist that painted last week's mural - the Sturt Desert Rose.
...this a fabulous mural with wonderful messages. "A child who reads is an adult who thinks," we can see this playing out today! Thanks Sami for hosting the party.ReplyDelete
Quite right Tom, most youngsters no longer read books.Delete
I read somewhere that if a child isn't read to by the time s/he is three, s/he won't read well in the future. I believe that. Parents who read to their children are far more interested in their educations. If a child can't read, the door to his/her future closes quite quickly. I love, love, love this and there is a clear and present message there for all to see and READ! This is a wonderful find for you, dear.ReplyDelete
Thank you Elizabeth. I remember my Mom reading to us, and I still love reading today. And I also read to my kids, my daughter is an avid reader, sadly my son doesn't read, he's more into technical stuff.Delete
Good mural with a public service message. I'm not sure reading alone is the key to intelligent life and thought, though. Maybe you are reading disinformation on social media? Not a way to promote sharp thinking. It takes more than that.ReplyDelete
best... mae at maefood.blogspot.com
Thanks Mae. I wouldn't say social media is what we should rely on when reading, but books yes.Delete
I am a huge bookworm and all 3 of my adult children are the same, helps to read to them from the time they are babies. We need more artists with this frame of mind.ReplyDelete
Thanks Amy, I enjoy reading too and read to my kids, my daughter still likes to read, but not my son.Delete
A very striking mural.ReplyDelete
Thanks William :)Delete
That's an excellent quote. Despotic leaders around the world don't want citizens to be educated and to be able to read well. Good work by Miss Polly.ReplyDelete
Thanks Andrew :)Delete
Gosto do mural e das mensagens.ReplyDelete
Obrigada Catarina :)Delete
That's a really nice one. And that quote is going onto a sticky note and onto our home library, now. :DReplyDelete
Thank you for hosting, Sami.
Have a good week. :)
That's a lovely idea Dee, it's a great quote.Delete
Excellent art work on this mural but I do value its message even MORE.
Oh so true, reading is the basic for any child and I'm sure glad I was an avid reader from 1st grade on. My Parents were and so is my Pieter.
Thanks Mariette. I always loved reading too :)Delete
A mensagem é tão bela quanto o mural.ReplyDelete
Obrigada Pedro. Boa semana :)Delete

Beautiful mural and great quote. Thank you for hosting.ReplyDelete
Thank you Nancy :)Delete
Wonderful mural. I am so glad my Big Niece loves to read!ReplyDelete
The artist sure is sadly right, too few read books, too many play games.
Thanks Iris. So nice that your niece enjoys reading, not many parents put that much importance in reading nowadays.Delete
What a gorgeous mural and a so true quote!ReplyDelete
For whatever reason I can't put my post in your linky list. Here it is: https://geriatrixfotogallerie.wordpress.com/2021/11/01/insomnia/
Thanks Traudel. Not sure what is happening with some links not being working. I'll add it manually.Delete
Wonderful message, wonderful art.ReplyDelete
I love reading to children as much as they love listening - so many important aspects to books and reading - wide education, ideas, logic, art, imagination, virtual travel, empathy, personal space, .... I could go on. :)
Thanks Debbie, it's wonderful to read to kids.Delete
That is a pretty one!ReplyDelete
Thanks Marianne :)`Delete
And I hope that children continue to read for all time. Heaven knows we need more thinking adults!ReplyDelete
We sure do David, the more the merrier :)Delete
Great mural again Sami and reading is always good. Specially for kids.ReplyDelete
