Gelato and smoke and wisteria, all on a Saturday morning

Odessa reminds me that I meant to post the pictures I took on our original rendezvous in April...

On an inbound streetcar, passing fire escapes and sun-cast stucco and our huge forest of a park, all along with my drowsy fellow public-transportation patrons. I am never out this early on a Saturday morning, so it felt new and I thought, Good morning, good morning! to all of them.

We met up in North Beach, where laundry hangs from windows and fire escapes like I've never seen in San Francisco before.

Also where books fly and the words fallen from their pages tattoo the pavement.

Odessa initiates me into City Lights fandom. I took this from the window of the poetry level.

St. Peter and Paul Church on Washington Square.

P.S. I'm planning to do a giveaway soon. Sound good? Good.

The word pictures are so cool! Are they just stamped onto the pavement that way?

The book thing is so clever! I wonder who started the idea... hmm

Cassandra - Oh, me TOO.

boubou - Hallo hallo! :) Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

Priya - I don't know it was done, but it doesn't go into the pavement at all, if that makes sense. Paint and stencils, I suppose.

If I ever make my way to San Francisco, I MUST see those books with the words on the pavement.
