I have been a Bristol resident for over three decades. Not quite long enough to consider myself a true Bristolian, as I am often reminded by my lifelong Bristolian family and friends, but still a long-time loyal lover of this town’s rich history of arts, architecture, and landscape. I am also a runner. Some argue more of a jogger, or fast walker — but I can often be seen gasping for my last breath on our amazing bike path and throughout Colt State Park.
Over the past year I have been passing more and more little philanthropic gifts along my runs, which is inspiring me to reach out in appreciation. These are gifts of dog poops sealed in recyclable or non-recyclable decorative colored baggies, which are obviously gifts to me. I am touched and thought I would thank you all for enriching my experience in nature, day after day. You are true patrons!
Also, thank you for providing work to “others” that are given the opportunity to care for your dog poops. “Let them eat cake!” Again, true generous patrons!
And finally, the art…in the spirit of famous sculpture artists Christo and Jeanne-Claude, it is amazing how you seem to be working together in unison to create such a beautifully orchestrated multi-colored three-dimensional sculptural experience throughout our natural environment. Again, true art patrons!
The only two that I assume are a bit confused are Conrad and Pomeroy, the beautiful ominous bronze bulls that stand guard at Colt Farm’s gate, because there at their feet is inscribed, “public welcome”, but it is not inviting you to our historic park ground to dispose your disgusting dog excrement. My guess is that Conrad and Pomeroy might ask you to please find a trash can as you leave, or take your art home.
