Picket Fence on E. 31st St.

Was it an Amish artist, ousted, perhaps, for contact with the high-tech world, who adorned the picket fence surrounding a tiny house on East 31st Street with compact discs? Or just a diligent homeowner, creatively keeping pesky birds at bay? Painted in a somewhat traditional and primitive folk art fashion, the colorful creation is reminiscent of Pennsylvania Dutch Hex Signs purported to bring abundance, love, and safety to the owners. Considering these discs' proximity (only a few blocks from the Chronicle!), we are hoping their power will encompass us, too! 1100 block, East 31st
