Came across this bollard earlier, so I went looking for more and found these terrific figurative bollard sculptures by artist Jan Mitchell located in Geelong, Victoria (Australia). Commissioned by the city in 1994 to commemorate quirky characters and events from Geelong’s history, more than 100 of Mitchell’s pieces reside along its revitalized waterfront.

Somewhere along the way i lost the turmoil, my best friend, and my youth. But oh! the memories. And how lucky we were — and are — to have this lovely man in our world for whom tenderness is a way of life.
It doesn’t matter
who you love
or how you love
but that you love.
For in the end
The act of loving anyone
is the act of loving God.
The good in men
is all the God there is
and loving is a contribution
to that good
and to that only God.
by Rod McKuen
"Despite the word God appearing in it three different times, it is far from a religious poem or tract. God, in this case, is a euphemism for the higher aims in all of us."

Folk singer/songwriter Vikesh Kapoor performed at Howard Zinn’s 2010 memorial service in Boston, in front of Zinn’s family and colleagues. Inspired by Zinn’s lifelong battle against class/race injustice, Kapoor spent the next two years in Portland, Oregon working on a concept record based on a related newspaper article. His debut album, The Ballad Of Willy Robbins is a wonderful piece of Americana. Kapoor is currently on tour with Saintseneca. (website) (twitter) (careless love video)
