The last few days have been low key and lovely. Just hanging out, meeting up with old friends, making some new ones. San Francisco this time around seems like its old welcoming self. The last time I was here I felt slightly disconnected from the city and its people, but this time I could imagine coming back here to live. There is something nice in the air, something new and old at the same time. Because of the brouhaha over our new marriage rights, I am also keenly aware this time of how many of the gay couples I know that have been together a long time are getting married. People seem settled into mostly comfortable patterns of love and support for each other, something really sweet to see.
