The test of an adventure is that when you are in the middle of it, you say to yourself, "Oh, now I've got myself into an awful mess; I wish I were sitting quietly at home." And the sign that something is wrong with you is when you sit quietly at home wishing you were out having lots of adventure. -Thornton Wilder

The nice thing about being confused is you get a chance to notice things a lot better than if you knew where you were going.

Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.

Monday Mural


Marquette, Kansas

The small town of Marquette did indeed have all the elements depicted in the mural going for it, plus a small motorcycle museum too, which was my reason for going there.  Now if only the Public Works department could fix up those sidewalks...


Do notice that the mural is in the shape of Kansas.
