"Everyone is born, but not everyone is born the same. Some will grow to be butchers, or bakers, or candlestick makers. Some will only be really good at making Jell-O salad. One way or another, though, every human being is unique, for better or for worse"

Chalk in

"Come join PB & The Counseling Center as they host the 30th Annual Arts Fest & Chalk-In! Drop by for some de-stressing arts and crafts activities (make a stress ball, do some spray painting, or decorate a frame), as well as free barbeque!"

What I don't understand is why people destress by chalking in the periodic table...

I found Harriet M. Welsch's garden

The Magic Gardens in Philadelphia was a project started by Isaiah Zagar in 1994. After traveling to Peru with the peace corp he felt a canvas was too confining, and sought to create a mosaic labyrinth to pay tribute to Peruvian folk art. This is what he created.
"In 2002, the Boston-based owner of the once-vacant lot located at 1022-1026 South Street decided to sell the land in response to rising South Street property values. Unwilling to witness the destruction of Zagar's neighborhood art environment, the community rushed to support the artist. His creation, newly titled Philadelphia's Magic Gardens, became incorporated as a nonprofit organization with the intention of preserving and promoting Zagar's works at the site of the Magic Gardens and throughout the South Street region."
