Happy 4th of July from That's Inked Up!
Ah, my friends, the time has come for us to put aside our rollers and plates and stones and inks and papers. Temporarily, of course! The 4th of July is upon us and that means we gather with friends and family and fire up the grill, make some good old-fashioned coleslaw, get some chips and salsa and pass around a few cold iced teas and some hardier brewskis. We get a day or two to celebrate what is great about our country, watch some fireworks and splash about in the pool or go sailing or lounge about in the hammock. There is more to if, for certain, but these are common activities to celebrate our freedoms and our ways of life in the good ol' U.S. of A.
On the 4th, our first lady of freedom, Lady Liberty, gets to have a regatta of boats parade around her in New York City's harbor, and watches the fireworks with us. She is a great symbol for truth and justice, and a great source of strength to all visitors to our fair shores. I wanted to put up a single print, by Peter Max, that shows her resilience and resolve to be a source of hope and determination for our nation. God Bless Mr. Eiffel who made her, and Bless the French for bringing her to our country.
Many Blessings to all of you out there. Be safe wherever you are, and enjoy the holiday, for on the 5th, we will get back to inking it up!
