The Path from Football to Education

 


The University of Oregon is a pretty cool campus (hint, hint-upcoming blog) but they have a special part of it that I think is super cool.  It is the walk from Autzen Stadium, the football stadium to the main campus. It is really beautiful.

First a couple of pics of Autzen Stadium (I couldn't get much because it was all locked up and they were having an event):



And the Code of Conduct sign is just so cool:


And then when you leave the stadium to go to the main campus, you walk on what known as the Riverbank Path System. It is a bunch of interconnected paths run along the Willamette River:




But then you cross the Willamette:






And then you end up at;

Hayward and Union City 9/11 Memorials

 

This is the first time I have ever reused a blog or in this case two blogs.  With it being the sad 20-year anniversary of the tragedy of 9/11, I combined two blogs that I did a couple of years ago into one  to show how my little world remembers the tragic events of that day.


The first part is The Flight 93 memorial. It near the Union Landing Shopping Center in Union City, Ca which is about six minutes from my house and I go shopping at Smart and Final for groceries all the time which is basically across the street




 The passengers and flight attendants who attempted to regain control of that flight are true heroes:









The second part is in my city of Hayward, they city leaders did a 9/11 memorial downtown:








These are simple but yet powerful memorials to the brave people who lost their lives on that horrible day. May we never forget what happened on that day and pray for the souls of all those who lost their lives and were injured on that day and their families.

Living in the Past- A Collection of the Work of Jeremy Fish

 


I went by one of my favorite art galleries and that is the Haight Street Art Center in San Francisco. They had an exhibition of illustrator and artist Jeremy Fish's work. He lives in the North Beach section of San Francisco:










I love Fish's work and I love that he is San Francisco City Hall's artist in residence.
