These murals at @gracecathedral commemorate the 1906 San Francisco earthquake, that occurred 112 years ago on this day 📆 The earthquake struck the coast of Northern California at 5:12 a.m. on April 18 with an estimated magnitude of 7.9 (although values as high as 8.3 have been proposed). Devastating fires soon broke out in the city and lasted for several days. As a result, up to 3,000 people died and over 80% of the city of San Francisco was destroyed. The events are remembered as one of the worst and deadliest earthquakes in the history of the United States. The death toll remains the greatest loss of life from a natural disaster in California's history and high in the lists of American urban disasters 😞
Grace Cathedral, of the Diocese of California, grew from humble roots. Little Grace Chapel was built in the #1849 Gold Rush on Powell near Jackson Streets ⛪️

In a car you're always in a compartment, and because you're used to it you don't realize that through that car window everything you see is just more TV. You're a passive observer and it is all moving by you boringly in a frame.
On a motorcycle the frame is gone. You're completely in contact with it all. You're in the scene, not just watching it anymore, and the sense of presence is overwhelming. #1849
