Another reason to walk to my local library.   This vibrant & beautiful mural (La Flor de La Vida) sponored by the freetrade clothing shop, The Frida's Closet (25th above Bartlett).  Painted this year by Twin Walks Mural Company (Marina Perez-Wong & Elaine Chu).  Two things I didn't know.  1. The dalhia is the national flower of Mexico (also the official San Francisco city flower). 2. Chu's cat is named Drew. Libraries, art, walking, cooking are inseparable. What's for dinner?  Roasted pumpkin with feta, black olives, roasted tomatoes, and string beans. La vida is sweet. And which book borrowed?  Kay Ryan's latest, Erratic Facts. Yup, life is sweet & savory.

  1. All kinds of gadgets littering the way
    She kicked the box of empty cans to the side

    A triumphant burst of light, skyward bound
    and the red mountains appear in her vision

    And the honey bees find their flowers
    the endless arc of sustenance, the perfect design

    of the plan, hitting targets out of bounds,
    the slightest waver changes course

    challenging the outer reaches of the heart
