Ryan and I have this great plan to visit different neighborhoods here in San Francisco, explore their shops and restaurants, people and nuances. I’m amazed that until last night I had only left the Castro for a trip to my new favorite wine bar, Barrique, a jaunt for lunch in the Mission and a few trips out of the city. I live and work in the Castro. I grocery shop there, go to the area hardware shops and generally don’t leave it’s familiarity.
While I have technically been to the Mission and the Financial district, those trips were hardly exploratory. That’s where this venture comes in. Continue reading →
Before heading to the airport, and making our sad goodbyes, Ryan took me to a part of San Francisco I didn’t even know existed. How I never knew about the beautiful Sutro Heights Park I am not sure but I am sure happy that Ryan brought me there for some beautiful vistas, a slow long walk through the trails and a little time before I left for Missouri to talk about our future together.
The thought of leaving Ryan and California for Missouri made me sick. The idea that I was choosing to live two thousand miles away from the person and the place that I love just didn’t make sense. Yet, for some reason, less than 45 minutes after making it to Sutro Heights Park, we were back in the car and heading to the airport.
When I start thinking about how much I miss Ryan and my friends in California I’m reminded thatliving in Columbia isn’t my permanent future. Someday, hopefully someday soon, I’ll make some dramatic changes in my life and it won’t be long before I’m no longer visitin California and instead, living there.
I swear to whatever is necessary that I have a blog post or twelve coming. Life is just too busy for me right now to really explain what’s going on. I find it ironic that this blog is my release yet I’m too busy to spend the time necessary on it to get that release.
It’s a pretty horrible situation to be in. I’m too busy to write so I get frustrated, annoyed and even a little depressed. So now I need to write even more but again… no time.
So I’ll leave you with this. A photo I took from Fisherman’s Wharf. It was an amazing afternoon, the air was crisp and cool, the sun shining through a sky completely absent of any clouds and I was walking with two old friends to an unlimited wine and cupcake tasting. What could be better?
So, a post about all the fun from my San Francisco trip, like a month ago, is coming. It’s a two-part post. This will be followed up by a post covering my gallery show in Chicago and then another post about the future, San Francisco and work.
After that I’m thinking a few political posts and maybe one covering a musical artist I’m digging right now.
What else would you like me to write about? Leave it in the comments. Maybe I’ll make time to write if I feel there are people creating the obligation.
