long weekend in San Francisco~ my favorite
City by the Bay.
To me, San Francisco is a portal~
both to the past and to the future
as well as a most joyous present moment when I am here.
The Past~ Because so many aspects, neighborhoods, sights, smells and sounds
remind me of my years here coming of age.
The Future~ because as some of you know,
my dream is to once again live in the Bay Area,
preferably this time just across the Golden Gate Bridge,
somewhere that I can be
driving Mt. Tam,
seated at any restaurant
or perusing any art exhibit in the city
within the hour.
some years ago I spotted a photo in a magazine that I knew
was the kitchen of my future home.
Around that kitchen, I designed an entire writer's house
and set it on the side of a Marin hillside with a view of the bay.
