The inspiration this week on Inspire Me Thursday is “child art”.
When I was a kid, my family would go to the Jersey shore at Atlantic City. Every time we’d go to the beach, my mom would recite this poem:
“When I was down beside the sea
A wooden spade they gave to me
to dig the sandy shore
The holes were empty like a cup
In every hole the sea came up
‘Til it could come no more.”
I was just in Atlantic City this past weekend. Boy, has it changed.
(Pictured above: The Pincus Family on the Atlantic City beach, August 1962.)
Yeah, it sure has changed. Now Atlantic City is in color!
Great Job!!!!! Love the personal touch.
What a delightful childhood memory!
The picture is great but the poem is even better. Nice work!
Wonderful memories all combined here…your art, a photograph, and a poem. Enjoyed your post!
Great illustration! Nice to see the photo of Mr & Mrs Pincus, Little Josh. and his Big Brother! All that is missing is that crusty old ice cream man!!
OMG–Mrs Pincus looks like my oldest sister! Crazy. Anyway, yes, not only has Atlantic City changed since 1961 you should have seen it in the ’50’s when we went there from The City! I just love your posts, as I’ve said pretty often but that Jasper is a wiseguy!!! LOL
