Yerba Buena Mornings
Most weekdays on my walk to work, I usually end up cutting through Yerba Buena Gardens sometime between 8:30 – 9:00. (Thank God I can arrive there ‘fashionably late’. [ahem]) Although the design of the place does feel a little ‘brand new’/architecturally stagey, it’s a welcome oasis of green amid the commercial bustle of SOMA. The part I look forward to most is having to squeeze past the group of elderly members of the Asian community practicing traditional Tai Chi work outs, like the sword and fan forms. With my headphones on supplying my personal soundtrack, it’s a serene way to begin the workday (especially when it’s a fan day).
