This is my last dinner in San Francisco until around 6 weeks from now, when I’ll move here for a spell. The last half-month has been remarkable and restorative, and to say that I’m thrilled knowing that the area will soon be called home is an understatement. This place gets me, and I get it. The people I’ve met, both through work and through my personal networks, remind me that there are like-minded souls in the States for wanderers like me; it feels incredibly right that I’ve decided that the Bay Area will be the next chapter of my life.
Tomorrow morning I’m off to Tokyo for a month; it’s hard to believe that it’s been nearly 3 months since I’ve been in Asia.
