Multi-tasking has taken a bum rap lately, but when I combine exercise, time with my husband, and running an errand like going to Safeway for some staples, I think multi-tasking is just great.
When living in San Francisco, even a mundane task like grocery shopping turns into something interesting. Last night's walk from Pacific Heights, down through Cow Hollow and to the Marina turned into an art walk.
This tiled staircase at a private house in Pacific Heights was done by Colette Crutcher, one of the two artists who created the famous public staircases on Moraga and on Kirkland streets.
The Marina Safeway itself sports this lovely tiled wall, created by John Garth, who placed over 150,000 bits of colored glass from cities in Italy, and ceramic tile pieces from Japan to create this treasure.
Who says grocery shopping is a chore to get over? Not I, not living here in San Francisco. Are you ready?
