Have you heard of  "yarn bombing"? Personally, I just don't get it. I suppose it is similar to performance art. Like art you can't get away from because it is right there in community shared space whether you want to see it or not. Don't get me wrong, some of it I enjoy, some I do not, just like when I PURPOSELY go to the theater or the museum. Too me, it is not like the beauty of city sculpture or architecture or gardens. It seems like soft-core vandalism. Kind of like graffiti. But I don't know. What do you think? Click the "yarn bombing" link and see for yourself.

I am in favor of it. I have a friend who yarn bombs the town nativity scene every holiday season. Blanket for baby Jesus, scarves for the wise men, that kind of thing. Nothing disrespectful. The town leaves it there. She once yarn bombed a telephone pole in the middle of a particularly dreary winter, green grass and some flowers. A touch of spring.

I can see that if I had a friend like that, I, too, would be in favor of it. I like the motivation--to bring joy to others.
