that afar - telegraph hill - sf, ca
it's a wonderful thing, experiencing a new place for the first time. lately, i've made it a point to put myself where i've imagined being. to take baby steps outside the box and breath new clouds all over san francisco. yesterday, twin peaks. today, city lights (where i've been meaning to drop in for two and a half years!). i left both locations clutching something--a hand, a book--knowing that i'd be back. but it's the first time, isn't it? that first glimpse of a city made vastly small in the distance. that first crunch of a hard-bound spine. you will retrace and relive those moments over and over. before you know it, they'll have a heartbeat all their own.
