As the 1-California trolleybus whined away, I began to jog and turned into an alleyway, figuring it would be a shorter route to the office. The narrow street was covered in a film of black grime and flanked on either side by gray weathered walls of old buildings. Towers of the Financial District loomed in the background and overcast skies radiated a gloomy glare that accentuated the already drab street. As I raced towards the end of the alley, my eyes squinted and steps halted by a bright prismatic mural gleaming on the wall next to me. I was drawn into the artwork’s psychedelic colors and photorealistic portrait of a pensive woman. The maiden was crowned with blooming roses and immersed in a world of geometric shapes and prismatic colors. After a short yet unknown amount of time, I snapped out of my reverie, remembered where I was going, and continued my quick pace to work.
