On October 1, we illustrated our first in a series of “interludes” within the book project that will be called The Big Picture. These pages will reflect on history and theme, not what happened that particular day. In this case, our attempted move to San Francisco, which I have haltingly, painfully blogged about in the past. Last summer J really wanted to move to the Bay Area and I agreed; but so much is involved in such a huge change. The two biggest stumbling blocks were my illness, because I wasn’t strong enough emotionally or physically to do what was required; and our house was still bound up in financial complications. I didn’t think I could imagine living anywhere but here… but for several months, I was able to picture us dwelling quite happily in San Francisco’s Sunset District, by the sea, in the fog.
