Relatin'

Before living there I thought it was the greatest city and nothing could ever compare. After we moved there, I developed the most extreme love/hate relationship with the place that ultimately became so exhausting it started to wear away at my soul.

I agree with the "collection of insular social groups..." comment. I also think that it is a much more conservative place than believed to be, and that when people think of San Francisco, they are usually thinking of one or two or MAYBE three neighborhoods, not the majority of the city which is pretty dog eat dog and not all that glamorous or else made up vulgar wealth and all the ills that come with that whole thing.

Still, I always loved the ocean, the fog, the houses painted different and wonderful colors, cafes in North Beach and especially the murals. I miss the murals most of all. And fantastic huge cheap burritos.

I don't really ever miss the people.

Ahhhh, Yeah
thanks guys.

i understand that well
there are so many things that are SICK about this town

when i slide upon the surface
it is SO beautiful

but i've never felt good putting down roots
or dealing with the society at large here

it's good to get feed-back agreeing with me...

but i also have friends here that love the city to peices and will not tolerate anything bad being said about it
(and i will withhold my judements about these peoples own state of being, but know: i have some)

it's a beautiful city from a distance
it's great for a visit
but i'll see you next at the places you've actually made home in...
