(The statistics indicate that one out of every four persons is suffering from some sort of mental illness.
Think of your three best friends; if they’re okay, then it’s you.)
I’m taking the afternoon off. Just remembering giving birth to Dan has put me in need of a mental health break. When I’m stressed I head out to the garden. I have lots to do out there especially trying to figure out what I want to do with a low area that just doesn’t get much sun. It’s in the far back of the lot where it’s heavily wooded. Here’s an idea (maybe from someone who’s done time); you might want to try it. Or not.
(serves to create several small pieces or 1 large piece of graffiti)
1 can of beer
1/2 teaspoon sugar
Several clumps garden moss
You will also need a plastic container (with lid),
a blender and a paintbrush
To begin the recipe, first of all gather together several clumps of moss (moss can usually be found in moist, shady places) and crumble them into a blender. Then add the beer and sugar and blend just long enough to create a smooth, creamy consistency.
Now pour the mixture into a plastic container.
Find a suitable damp and shady wall on to which you can apply your moss milkshake. Paint your chosen design onto the wall (either free-hand
or using a stencil). If possible try to return to the area over the following weeks to ensure that the mixture is kept moist. Soon the bits of blended moss should begin to re-couperate into a whole rooted plant – maintaining your chosen design before eventually colonising the whole area
