i feel that moving has made me very aware of my surroundings. i love the neighborhood i live in. all the individual houses and colorful buildings and interesting doors. all framed by the backdrop of the bay and the golden gate bridge. i am soaking it all up to take with me when we go back home. i think i'll remember the smells the most. as you can see from this door there is an abundance of flowers; roses, snap dragons, flowers whose names i don't know and my favorite jasmine. the blooms fill the even the air with beauty.
