Walk along Grant Street in San Francisco’s China town and you’ll come to an alley that will take you on a trip from one culture to another (in more than one way) and from one time period to another.  At the other end of the alley is City Lights Books, established in 1953 and an icon of the Beat Generation.  As you walk along the alley, you will see paving stones with literary quotes and on the wall, beautiful, sometimes humorous, murals.  Take a trip down memory lane to a time when “beat” mean “beatnik”, not “Just beat it.”



Finally!! I’ve been waiting all morning to see what this week’s photo challenge is and although the time wasn’t fleeting, the challenge is. Here’s something else that was fleeting, a chalk drawing our younger daughter and a friend did near the apartment complex where
my husband was living at the time. We loved watching people’s faces when they saw it.
