Our story begins on a cool but beautiful day in Almost-Spring.
Our heroine is the Lovely Queen of Arts.
This Queen needed to escape the Castle. "Time for some Guerrilla Action." she thought.
"It is time to ..."
So the Queen went to the Royal Studio and played with her own hand carved "Q of A" rubber stamp and a few other toys to create these :
She came up with some Q of A quotes to adorn the backs :
She called for her loyal servant :
And off they went to commit Random Acts of Queen-ness, Guerrilla Art Style !
The Queen tied a Royal Tag onto the tree in plain view of a local peasant sitting on the bench across the way, but she was not interrupted.
And she tied another Royal Tag, this time with a quote she adored, among its boughs.
As the Queen and her loyal servant continued along their path, they came upon a sight that reminded the Queen of an Art adventure she had taken long ago.
For there on a metal pole, in the middle of the "Park With Even Less", was a remnant from a walk the Queen had taken with Tags sent to her all the way from the other side of the planet. Tags sent to the Queen by the famous Guerrilla Artist, grrl +dog, way back in October, 2008.
It no longer shone with its previous brilliance.
(Memory shot - October, 2008 )
The Queen was saddened to see that time had taken its toll on the Australian Tag, just as it had on her own eyes with their beginnings of crows feet and their need for bifocal lenses.
"Our youth is gone, my friend." whispered the Queen to the withered tag, quietly so the peasants did not get frightened by the fact that their Liege was talking to herself in the park.
And then the Queen's inner artist took over. Youth may be gone but in its place : Artsy Wisdom.
The Wise Queen tied two of her bright, newly created tags on to the pole, one above and one below the worn Australia one placed there so long ago.
She thought to herself : "I may be older by a season or two, but I have learned that Any Time is the right time to dress things up and have a Good Time !"
We're here for a good time
Not a long time
So have a good time
The Sun can't shine everyday.
