A note about the artwork from the artist – Jaxon Northon “Ed Carlson was a free spirit known as the waver who lived in Reno from the 1970s to 2007. He spent every day walking, waving, and smiling to passing motorists throughout Northern Nevada as well as across the country. He sold ‘pet rocks’ and spread a message of love to everyone he came in contact with. He died in 2012 at the age of 75. As a child, spotting him on the side of the road and waving back to him from the back of my mom’s station wagon was one of the most exciting moments of any trip into town for me and my siblings. In high school, my mom gave me a personalized signed copy of his book ‘I Walked to the Moon and Back and Almost Everybody Waved’ that I still own to this day. Though tormented with his own personal problems and demons, the waver decided to try in the only way he knew how to spread love and kindness to the world around him. More people could stand to be like Ed Carlson.”
