“There’s an African proverb: “When death finds you, may it find you alive.” Alive means living your own damn life, not the life that your parents wanted, or the life some cultural group or political party wanted, but the life that your own soul wants to live.” – Michael Meade
It seems ridiculous to me now when I think about how agonized I was starting this blog nearly three years ago. Along with this 200th post I recently logged my 20,000 visitor to the site and my 250th follower, so I must take a minute and thank all of you for your continued interest and support.

Some of the murals and buildings below are posted for the first time, while others have appeared in one of the previous sixteen entries in the Art of Running series.
