Jon,i've been to S.F. several times in my life...and then also spent that time up in sonoma county (petaluma)...S.F. is truly a beautiful city...one of the most beautiful i've seen....i remember the last two times...once when i was 21 and the other time when i was 35 feeling like i was ready to 'split' out of the city at the end of the day...of course i had no flat/place to crash at, but it did feel like the city's energy pulled the energy out of me...wonder what it would be like to stay there for a long period of time?and yes...it's 'no bargain'toddp.s. interesting 'tattoo' selections for the young lady :)
Hi Todd, yeah, San Francisco is a pretty intense place unless you have someplace safe to withdraw to. When I lived there I was always in noisy dangerous neighborhoods and I never felt like I belonged there. I never felt like it was safe to let down my guard. Nowadays I get to stay with friends who have nice homes and quiet spare bedrooms. That changes everything. Also, spending 22 years working for the Golden Gate Bridge made me feel a lot more like I'd earned my place in the city.
