Snowmen In The Street

 Shortly after Christmas I noticed three circles, crudely spray-stenciled near a curb, then more snowmen, groups and individuals, in blue or white. One set made me laugh. Someone had taken a permanent pen and given the snow people eyes, buttons and hats. Since then, I've found close to two hundred in white, blue, violet, red, green and tan, all within the borders of one neighborhood. Some are carefully positioned to "stand" on street lines. Others relate to cracks in the pavement or stand inside markings left by the gas company. An elderly lady asked me " What are they?" and then "What do they mean?" They mean that each day may have tiny moments of surprise and delight. Go on out and discover them!
