175/365 Blank slate

Last weekend, the parking lot at work was resurfaced and freshly striped.

I want nothing more than to grab some sidewalk chalk and go draw all over its perfectly black surface.

It's a blank slate. The only thing interrupting the flow of the smooth charcoal are the blinding white lines and fallen fruit from black walnut trees.

Chase and I always had sidewalk chalk on hand when we were kids. We drew hopscotch boards (obvious), dead-body outlines (of course), roadways for driving our Big Wheels and yellow pedal coupe, underwater scenes... But we rarely had a surface as pristine as this new parking lot seal.

Can I be a kid again, at least for a few hours?
