1.23 Writing - Ninja

Bestest Friend and I are embarking on a new blog project. Each day of the month we will post a picture on a pre-determined theme and write a little something about it. The theme for the twenty-third day of each month is "Lessons."

I hiked up Hayden Butte while I was in Tempe and there was a little viewing platform about halfway up. I stopped, mostly because I was so tired. I sort of thought that I was in reasonable shape and that going up the butte would be no big deal, but the combination of the heat, sun, and steepness meant I definitely needed a break halfway up.

And there was this sign.

I like to think that the person who the time to deface a sign on a landmark preserve has a good story to tell. Ninja is a code word between that person and her parents for when she needs help and then her parents died and she’s sending a message to her parents and wanted the message to be as high as possible.  Ninja is the only word a person with a learning disability knows how to write.  Perhaps the hope of being a ninja is the only thing keeping up the hopes of a kid with cancer. 

I certainly hope that this wasn’t just some jerk doesn’t know the correct place for the art of graffiti.  

To see what Bestest Friend wrote about the theme of the day, check out her blog, Too Legit To Quit.
