Odd Road Sign Encapsulates Bernal Heights Mentality

hillsign2

Bernal Heights is a magical place, and much of the magic stems from the many ways that Bernal Hill shapes our relationship with the rest of the city.

That generally makes Bernal feel like a place apart. But Neighbor Edward recently found a street sign on Elsie that warns of the myopia our geography can create:

Sometimes we need a reminder that there is a wider world out there. I was walking around the neighborhood, trying to pay attention to what I was seeing (as opposed to what I was thinking), and suddenly I saw it. The sign! Fortunately some prophetic soul at DPW has left this reminder for us on Elsie Street.

    Scooped — that’s owl-egg throwing distance from our own front yard!

    A yard passed this morning, I note, by a grimly determined but determinedly bikini-clad Bikini Jogger.
