The beauty in graffiti's artform
Years ago graffiti was viewed as an illegal activity and condemned as malicious destruction of property. It was seen as mere vandalism by the wayward wanton youth who was a waster of time and was also a scourge on society. We never stopped to think that it was the youth trying to express themselves in the only way that they had available to them. That they found and saw beauty in the freeform of expression giving their voices an outlet and substantive value. Beauty is everywhere. One just has to look hard enough.

'The Golden Girls' Still Being Watched 30 Years After Finale
The finale of The Golden Girls aired 30 years ago. The finale ranked among the most-watched finales ever in the history of television. It might not seem like it has been that long ago because viewers can still watch the show through syndicated reruns.

Recently, I saw a TikTok video of an Asian woman getting her 23andMe results. In a mere 15 seconds, she opens the envelope, looks at it and shows the audience what it says. The results are that she is Chinese and of Southeast Asian descent. The video ends with her deadpan expression and the words "I wasted $150" above her head.
