Gabe Zimmerman is remembered by his family and friends with a tribute to the natural world. As one of the Prince Milers repeated all morning, "there is a lot of nature here," at Christina's park. Some of it has expanded with the irrigation provided by Pima County Natural Resources, Parks and Recreation
Just look at the top of that barrel cactus, filled with water on top, skinny and dessicated below.
Some of it was here before the park,
It's not graffiti; it's chalk art.
There were kids everywhere.
There were proud chalk artists
and the world's largest therapy dog.
But mostly, there was love.
They drove all the way from Mesa, just to say HI!
and to draw a magnificent tribute on the pathway.
That's what it was all about.
As someone else wrote:
You helped me to heal, and I thank you.
Tomorrow's post will be chalk art from the event.
Two years ago tonight no one knew my name.
How quickly things change.
How hard it is to adjust.
