First Day in SF

Visitors at the I Live Here:SF exhibit at SOMArts have been posting their own Muni stories on the Muni shelter. Here are a few:

“On my first week in San Francisco, I took the Muni F line from downtown Market Street toward the Castro. I was inside the Italian car — the one that’s made completely out of wood. There was no sitting space so I stood in the back by the “bay window,” and damn, everything was so beautiful and people were smiling. I thought that I had just moved to heaven.

p.s. I don’t believe in any dieties.”

We also have cartoons that you can caption (see above) from Michael Capozzola, who draws “Surveillance Caricatures” in the San Francisco Chronicle’s 96 Hours section. Another story:

“I was sitting on line 9 next to this handsome young man. For the next 15 minutes I was trying to make a compliment of his style. However, we didn’t make any eye contact. In the last minute before I get off the bus, I typed [on my phone], “You’re very good looking. Have a nice day!” with a friendly smile I show my message in front of his face and got off the bus. My heart was singing. How difficult to compliment someone!”

– June.

Tuesday, Nov. 30, is the only day left to see the exhibit, with Julie Michelle’s photos, art by Chris Rusak, and last year’s Lost Landscapes from Rick Prelinger. Closing reception is from 5 – 7 p.m.
