I'm back in San Francisco once again, the City That Everyone Loves. The moment I step off the plane, the memories come flooding back and I can hardly believe I was fortunate enough to call this sparkling city my home for nine years.
The photo above was snagged from Bjork's website, taken during a concert under the Bay Bridge several years ago. I'm in this photo represented as a tiny black dot somewhere near the back. My friend, James, and I watched Iceland's greatest gift to the arts sing her heart out while boats, ships and barges floated on the bay behind her. A giant full moon generously lit up the night sky and the concert was followed by gorgeous fireworks It was a truly magical scene and one of my favorite SF memories.
Life is often like that in the Bay Area. Sure, it's expensive and the traffic is unbearable at times but there are frequent episodes of unspeakable beauty, like that evening, that make it all worth it.
