Imagine the harbor is your bathtub. And imagine your little boats and toys in the tub along with your little rubber ducky. That's the conception of Dutch artist Florentijin who designed a giant rubber ducky to send to harbors around the world to bring messages of peace and harmony. The following photographs are from the AP.
Rubber Ducky in the Hong Kong Harbor
The ducky is fifty-four feet high
What a sight it must be
Appropriately named "Spreading Joy Around the World," the sculpture has continued its journey for a couple of years. How can it not make you smile? Art comes in many forms and I just love this one.
The ubiquitous little yellow ducky has also found its home in many upscale bed and breakfasts. Along with the luxurious soaps and sponges, the rubber ducky often sits right alongside on the shelf over the large deep bathtub.
We need rubber duckies here in Western NC right now. Our already soaked earth received more than four inches of rain this weekend. The rivers are already out of their banks, flooding fields and closing highways. And we are under flood warnings until Wednesday. Today dawned bright and sunny, giving us hope that the rains are finished for awhile. The farmers are suffering so we hope things will dry out soon. On a purely selfish note: I want my fresh strawberries to be large and sweet next month. It may not happen with so much moisture and mold. Oh well, there will always be fresh tomatoes won't there?
