San Francisco’s Secret Mosaic Staircase
If you’ve ever wanted to find a hidden art gem in San Francisco, head to 16th and Moraga to discover The 16th Avenue Tiled Steps. Not only will you be able to see some amazing views of the city, you’ll get to appreciate a beautiful mosaic running up 163 steps. Inspired by the world-famous steps in Rio de Janeiro, Irish ceramist Aileen Barr and mosaic artist Colette Crutcher joined forces, working with over 300 community volunteers for over a two and a half year period until they unveiled the project in August 2005.

Tumblr is soooooooo S-L-O-W-W-W for me this morning.
Watching pundits react to Chelsea Clinton’s pregnancy says so much about the state of political discourse and absolutely nothing about why a young couple might decide to have a child. Are we going to be discussing this for two more years? Can you imagine this being discussed because someone was going to become a GRANDFATHER?
your aunt, niece, or cousin,
I am my own person,
and I will not set fire to myself
to keep you warm.
