Hello Friends, Thank you for stopping by. I hope you enjoy this message about San Francisco.
I miss it, I miss it without knowing it, because I wished it away. I miss the small seven by seven city filled with people living on top of each other. I miss the wind that comes down from a beautiful skyscraper after praying for the sun for the last 5 days. I miss the busy streets filled with those annoying toursy people that came from all over the world just to see the Golden Gate Bridge. I miss sitting on the balcony watching all the cars pass by as they struggle to make it through the hilly streets of San Francisco. I miss walking down Columbus street and see the flashing lights; begging you to consume all the carbs you can eat in North Beach. I miss riding the bus full of old asian people that think they own the city since you're in their hood, If you take the 30(bus) to work, you know it rolls straight through China town. I miss parks filled with under age kids sitting on a blanket that they borrowed from their parents as they rolled their joint and their friends are stumbling with a can of blue mountains on it. I miss those long lines of waiting for ice cream when the weather is 55 degrees outside. I miss the long walks through the Golden Gate Park to make it to the beach before sunset. I miss sitting on top of a hill called Dolores Park that people have gatherings to celebrate birthdays or to celebrate a community of gay men that we adore as they shake their booties and lip sing to Brittney Spears. I miss standing on top of the highest peak in San Francisco called Twin Peaks as the city give us the warmest glow before dawn. I miss those long bus rides with my AirPods in, listening to my favorite tunes or a great podcast. I miss the mobile orders from Starbucks in the A.M because if you truly live in San Francisco... you know that waiting in line for coffee will make you late to work. I miss the messy street called Market in FiDi filled with homeless people that are struggling to make it through the next day because life is messy sometimes. I miss going to the Farmers Market on Embarcadero every Saturday morning. There's great cold brew from Sightglass and fresh picked strawberries from a farm nearby. I miss riding my bike across the Golden Gate bridge to Sausalito to get a baguette drenched in olive oil. I miss correcting the visitors calling San Francisco, "San Fran." Sorry but we don't call Kansas City, "Kan City." So when you visit our city, don't caption us as San Fran. (: I miss picnic dates with Chris at Alamo square as we pull out three different cheese and a bottle of wine while everyone around us is jamming out to "everywhere you look." I miss all the familiar faces with a heart stopping story that walk through the biggest sliding glass doors in Union Square ready to be enriched by heroes in a blue shirts. I can't believe I'm saying this but I miss Karl the fog that rolls in from the beach. Thats right, even our Fog has a name. I miss the need to have a side hustle because everyone knows that one job is not enough to afford rent in a place we call home. I didn't realize this was my home until I moved away. But now you might realize that this is home, for the people of San Francisco. Not everyone that stops by, stays forever, not even you. I guess whoever said I left my heart in San Francisco was right. My happy heart never left SF since the day I stepped on the grounds of the seven by seven mile city over 2 years ago.
