Spied a cool new mural in the downtown on Tuesday, so I risked being late to my lunch appointment to swing over and take a picture. I like murals that play fast and loose with perspective.
The weather has been absolutely wonderful in Sacramento. You know the weather I mean. Sunny but breezy, and just cool enough that when you're sitting on a patio having lunch, you idly wonder where your jacket is. Everyone is getting out to enjoy it for the short time it lasts.
Afterwards, I took a detour through an alley behind the State Food and Ag building, and I swear I smelled cloves. Cloves, cloves, very strong. Their cafeteria wasn't suddenly baking Thanksgiving pies or anything; I ducked in there and sniffed. Are the Food and Ag workers smoking clove cigarettes near the giant vent? It's a Sacramento mystery.
Another mystery: Who are these figures on the side of the Department of Transportation building, and why are they hugging things?
e asked if the figures were meant to be riff on the Art Deco period. I replied they are the Art Deco period - period.
