Can’t complain when my job “makes” me go to Stinson Beach to hang out with a friend and her amazing family. I first met Jacqueline in the MFA program at Mills College. I have no words to fully describe my love for this cosmic creature. The occasion was her fathers birthday and her whole family spent the weekend in a beach house to eat, and hang out. It was a beautiful day so I decided to ride there on my motorcycle over Mt. Tam and it was the right decision. I lived in San Francisco/ Oakland for 8 years and never once tired of the North Bay, it is always a treat and privilege to spend time along the coast. California is special.
