     The beautiful mosaic tiled steps of 16th Avenue & Moraga Street. Artists Aileen Barr and Colette Crutcher created the mosaic design, a colorful, flowing, sea-to-sky theme, with fish near the foot of the steps and birds, leaves and stars near the top. The mosaic consists of 163 separate mosaic panels, one for each step riser. Community members were able to participate directly in creating the panels via a series of workshops that the artists held during summer 2004.
                                         San Francisco ~  California

I love this! I have only spent 3 days in San Francisco, most of it working.  NEED to go back!
This photo also reminds me that it’s high time for me to head down to Philadelphia for a few days, so I can run around obsessing over all the murals, mosaics and other street art there.  I ((heart)) it so much.

Why do I not have an unlimited travel budget so I can go see this exhibit in LA right fucking now.

(so sad). I need to be rich.

in related news, I need to play with spraypaint soon.

this.  and further - be open to getting close to many other human beings! even temporarily!
many people = many different kinds of connections.
even I, as a kind of grumpy mcmisanthrope, value connections above all else.
