Meandering around aimlessly on my bicycle some time ago, I found this little tiny street that had a nice surprise at the end of it.
The wall of a building painted with portraits and quotes from various authors.
“We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.” -Oscar Wilde
“Out of all the conflicts and the curses, the blows and the anger, the tension and the terror, I had somehow gotten the idea that life could be different, could be lived in a fuller and richer manner.” -Richard Wright
“The beauty of the world has two edges, one of laughter, one of anguish, cutting the heart asunder.” -Virginia Woolf
One of the things I appreciate about traveling slowly – I don’t feel as bothered stopping for a few minutes to take photos of something interesting I run across, since I’m already not in a hurry.
Hope you’re all having a nice Autumn so far – it’s been mostly beautiful here in Portland. Sunny and cool or cold and foggy, but not a lot of rain yet, which is kind of nice; I’m sure we’ll get our share yet :)
