Si quaeris peninsulam amoenam, circum spice

May 20, 2008

If you seek a pleasant peninsula, look around you.. 

People defy all socio-meteorological conventions to enjoy their weekends in San Francisco. The peninsula is 7 miles across. A good portion of it can instantaneously disappear into fog. The old airfield-turned-National seashore, Crissy Field, was the first to be subsumed Saturday. The fleeced and hooded ran for all manner of gleaming german automobilia as the dense mass bared down; extinguishing barbecues, crushing ids. A distant din of iphone dial tones symptomatic of a crazed, last ditch rush for restaurant reservations.
