Best part about fake flowers?
They look good no matter what the weather. We, on the other hand need help. Hot weather. Pouring rain. We get frustrated, tired and miserable. If you believe “no one likes us and we don’t care.” That’s cool. At least care for each other. We’re Philadelphians. And if that means wearing a mask when you go out and supporting the idea that #blacklivesmatter , we’ll end 2020 better than we started. One love Philly ❤️
A lot to love about spending time outside in Philadelphia.
Whether it’s admiring the city’s collection of outdoor sculptures and art — like Robert Indiana’s iconic statue or any of the over 4,000 murals throughout the city — or hiking, biking, running, or walking through a park system totaling over 10,00 acres, there is a seemingly endless number of outdoor activities to enjoy in the city.

This romantic and imaginary landscape is filled with palm trees, temples, tombs, ruins of previous civilizations, and an array of active figures. The benefits of peace are evident in the tranquil integration of philosophy, the exchange of knowledge, the visible signs of trade and commerce, and the arts of dance, music, and representation. Cropsey emphasized that this invented view of the ancient world expressed his belief that Christianity was historically inevitable. The shepherd with his goats in the lower left is a direct reference to Christ guarding his flock while the lion, boy, and lamb carved on the monument on the round temple allude to the Old Testament prophecy that the kingdom of peace, brought into being by the Messiah, would be a place of "no violence or destruction in God's creation, even in the animal kingdom. Natural enemies will no longer be enemies. The food chain will be unchained.” (Isaiah 11:6)
Cropsey completed The Spirit of Peace in response to the American war with Mexico, an armed conflict that lasted for two years in the wake of the 1845 U.S. annexation of Texas. The painting has a companion, The Spirit of War, which hangs in the @nationalgallery in Washington, D.C. Cropsey’s contemporaries admired both works as great achievements.
Jasper Francis Cropsey (1823–1900) was born on a farm in Staten Island, NY. He began his artistic career at age 14 as an apprentice to architect Joseph Trench who encouraged Cropsey’s interest in art by providing him with paint, canvas, and space to work. He exhibited his first public work, Italian Composition, in 1843 at the @natlacademy in Manhattan. During a long and successful career, Cropsey became known for realistic and meticulously composed landscapes brimming with lively figures, detailed architectural elements, animals, and other features that distinguished his work from his fellow Hudson River School artists.

I’m at that age where I often forget exactly how old I am... but one thing for sure, I do a damn good job acting like a little kid. Tonight I am celebrating my birthday with an insane amount of tacos. Fuck yeah.

The four pack at @stockphilly’s Anchor Light pop-up: two lobster rolls, a crab roll, and a shrimp roll. The delivery bag smelled like the ocean 🌊 🦞 ☀️

These eager flames can't be contained. Cities are claimed by the smallest spark.
