I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

San Francisco

Seen from Mount Tamalpais in Marin County, the spires of San Francisco look like something from a fairy tale.

I'm taking advantage of spring break to spend a few days visiting friends, staying in an AirBnB south of the campus in Berkeley, where everything is different—no more Kip's or Cody's or Rasputin Records—and yet unnervingly familiar.

And someone I hadn't seen in more than 40 years actually recognized me when I was walking on campus today, so apparently I am among the things that haven't really changed as much as I would like to believe.
