By the light…

I’ve been in San Francisco one year this month.

One year ago I stopped living with my ex-husband, drove 3000+ miles across country, and established a new life in California.

One year ago I closed down my successful Massachusetts business and bid my friends and Boston good-bye.

One year ago I sat in my new apartment, unsure if I had just made the biggest mistake of my life. I sat, quietly in a darkening room and listened to the strange sounds of a new home.

Gradually, I became aware of a soft light coming in through the window. Looking up, I saw the Silver Moon framed in the window. Outside, the Bay was lit up so brightly I could see the ripples of the individual waves.

Well, I wasn’t looking for a sign, but this will do. Yes, this will do.
