Hidden Treasures

Moving to Lakewood was easily the best thing I’ve done for myself in…probably my whole life and that’s not even hyperbole. These past nine months have been amazing. Lakewood is an adorable little area. There are tons of beautiful homes, bars, restaurants, and it’s a very safe area. But the thing is, I feel like it’s kind of missing something. Rather, it’s not my perfect location. It was exactly what I needed as a country girl moving to the city, but I’m ready to move closer to the city now.*

When I first starting biking I did basically all my rides downtown, in Tremont, or in Ohio City. (I’m really sorry if you’re not local and me naming areas means nothing to you!) But since gaining the confidence to bike alone I’ve been cruising around Lakewood by myself. I don’t love it as much as biking in other Cleveland areas because we don’t have a lot of graffiti or murals over here. I’m sure if you’ve been reading my blog for any amount of time you’ve noticed I love taking photos of my bike in front of pretty walls. It combines a handful of things I love; graffiti, bikes, and photography, and it gives me an excuse to take a break. I have really poor endurance when I’m biking alone.

Anyway, last week, while I was out enjoying my very first ride in the snow I spotted this wall. I have no idea what it’s all about but I’m overjoyed to have found a little piece of art out in the wild here. The wall was covered in colorful blocks that had little collages of random items. I’m not sure what the significance of each item or collage was. I suppose I could have poked around the building a little more but hey, it was cold! 

Here’s to finding more little treasures in my neighborhood!

*It’s actually kind of funny to say that. I’m only fifteen minutes away from downtown but I’m anxious to move a bit closer. My lease is up in February and I’m hoping to get within an easy biking distance to downtown.
