While walking home from work I sometimes cut through China Town. This evening was especially lovely out. Every once in a while, even as someone who lives in this city, I just have to stop and recognize how beautiful it can be. I think in our day to day lives we can get jaded or at least just take for granted that we live in a city in which tens of millions of people visit per year. Also as anyone living in San Francisco knows, more and more people are wanting to live here resulting in outrageous housing costs. So, who knows how long we’ll even be able to live here, but for now, I’m just going to try to appreciate my surroundings a bit more.
