Writing from San Francisco
The city of San Francisco is one of the most amazing cities in the world, and although it is not the place where I was born, it is the place that I call home. I moved here from Tucson, a city where a one bedroom house with a yard can be rented in a relatively nice neighborhood for under $500 per month. Here, I pay three times that for the same amount of space without the yard. Sure, there’s a higher wage pay here to make up for the difference … except that I’m a freelance writer which means that I can work from anywhere … and yet I make the same amount of income no matter where I work from.
The funny thing is that I make more money living in San Francisco than I ever did living in Tucson. The reason for that is simple; San Francisco is the place which holds my heart. It is the place which inspires me. It is the place where all of my creativity comes to a peak and merges in to a productivity which is unparalleled for me anywhere else in the world. I can work here, in an artistic field, because I am alive here in a way that I just don’t quite feel anywhere else. And for that reason, I am starting a blog about life in San Francisco, to share the joys of the city, its moments of inspirations and its places for escape with those people who don’t have the luxury of experiencing it first hand every day.
