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 - In the Movies

The Lone Pine Film History Museum
 Lone Pine, California

The nearby Alabama Hills was the location of many Hollywood movies and television programs.
This sweeping mural adorned the side of their film museum.
How many movies, characters and actors do you recognize?

  2. You ask to much of me, must be John Wayne somewhere I suppose. Must have been fun for the artist to paint this wall.

  3. I think it would enjoy this museum immensely as it would bring back childhood memories. I don't usually dwell on the past but it would be fun to spend a few hours thinking about old movies and TV shows.

    I am also happy to note that they celebrate draft beer, as seen in the last photo.
