Colorful Connections

I ventured into downtown this past weekend in search of some inspiration and found myself surrounded by colorful ideas. As I strolled by the soon to open San Pedro Square Market, I stumbled upon a beautiful artistic endeavor that is an effort, by the city, to stop graffiti from filling empty spaces. Artist Lorna Sulgit's wall mural is a collage of old canning labels of once locally canned products. The familiar city names along with the bold hues create an almost nostalgic feeling for what San Jose was and a longing for what the city, full of art mavens from music to design, can be. Finishing the lazy day with a coffee, I wandered over to the Willow Glen area where I stopped by a little cafe/bakery I had always wanted to check out and I was not disappointed. Full of bright tones, the small Flower Flour patisserie has cozy nooks, inside and out, where one can enjoy that cup of joe or a refreshing lemonade after a long work week.
