“When I hear somebody sigh, ‘Life is hard,’ I am always tempted to ask, ‘Compared to what?'” ~ Sydney J. Harris
I left my allergist’s office this evening and realized that the row of houses on Limestone street in front of the downtown skyline remind me of the row houses in San Fransisco known as The Painted Ladies. The difference is that there’s a park across the street from The Painted Ladies, where a parking lot sits across from the Limestone Street houses. Many years ago, when we were touring California, there was a European magazine (I think) that set up a photo shoot with us in that park across from The Painted Ladies. I never saw the photos or the finished article. Somewhere out there are photos of a really young me with those beautiful victorian homes and the San Fransisco skyline as a backdrop.
