Russian Hill

Union Square, San Francisco

Today I hiked to Russian Hill to release some Poppies of Endearment and my starting point was Union Square in downtown San Francisco. 

On my way up, I passed this beautiful entrance of an apartment building on Nob Hill. Looks so posh, no?

Keep on chasing your dreams. One day soon, you will capture them...

In the vicinity of Grace Cathedral, this white wall and black iron begged for some colorful poppies:



Anger is a tired and wilted flower. Replace it by a fresh and colorful one: Love!

On Russian Hill Place you can get a good view of the Bay bridge.


There are many little stairways on Russian Hill and it is really a pleasure to walk up and down them and enjoy the plants and flowers. Alongside one of those stairways, I left some blue poppies behind. Look closely to the left...

Hear that soft giggle? Let it burst into laughter and release it!

I kept on going further down on the stairways and encountered this impressive black doorway. Look to the left again. See the poppies?

Chase the stench of hate away by burying your nose in a bouquet of flowers. Inhale their sweet and kind scent.

At the Ina Coolbrith park you have a good view of Alcatraz.

While taking a picture of the view I spotted something in the fence right in front of me. A lock with the sweetest message dated 02/14/2010...

I left some poppies right next to it.

You are embraced by Grace. Marvel in it

I really wanted to place poppies on this Buddha. But instead opted for the dragon.

The gentle energy of Kindness will tickle your belly and make you smile!

And last but not least... an open mailbox invites some poppies in...
