These days, we can probably all use a little pick-me-up to lighten the emotional load. Sometimes, we may find them in unexpected places. I’ve stumbled upon a few kindness rocks on some of my recent walks, and some kids in my neighborhood have written inspiring messages on the sidewalks with paint or chalk, which is always fun to find.

Casey Drake lives in the Orlando area, and she’s sharing art in front of her home that’s bright, fun and full of Disney characters — and timely humor. Her recent sidewalk art series started while she and her 2-year-old were following recent stay-at-home orders.
“We were kind of cooped up in the house, so we came outside and I had some sidewalk chalk for my daughter. I drew a little Olaf for her on the sidewalk,” she told the Orlando Sentinel. “Other neighbors started commenting on it, then I started doing more and more, and then it became kind of a daily tradition.”
