from such great heights

a weekend away

Posted in life by chapwoman on August 18, 2009

i keep thinking about san francisco bay, about a lovely woman named Jen who lives there with her young husband and growing family. she speaks like a wise story-teller and smiles like new mothers do, and she has impacted my life more than i ever realized. i keep thinking about a dear friend named Kayleigh, who lives across that bay in a quirky college town teeming with frat houses and homeless crazies, about her contagious laugh and how she adapts so remarkably.  i keep thinking about san francisco itself, a city full of mystery and crowds and little knolls scattered throughout a grid of streets where artists sketch homes and dog-lovers throw frisbees and hippies smoke marijuana. i keep thinking about them. and i keep thinking about change–about how that word keeps coming back for more.
