I Live in San Francisco and You Don't #6

As of this week I have lived in the Bay Area for 15 years.

I love it here despite the astronomical home prices, the unavoidable traffic, the lack of a singular comprehensive transportation system and the viable alternative of moving to Australia.

It's taken me this long to love it as much as I do now.

Do you ever realize that you live in places longer than you live with some people?

So you gotta pick the place you live and LOVE it.

You gotta find the trees, bushes and water towers and look for them as you drive by and watch how they change season to season. After a few years they become as friendly as nostalgic memories, offering unkept promises of permanence.
