San Francisco – The One Legged Chair

It’s hard to feel stable in a city where everything and everyone has just arrived here, or is just about to leave or is otherwise on their way somewhere for work, travel or … just because they are lost and confused in life and to them – the life of a gypsy is one, at least temporary solution to their state of mind, and one way to postpone dealing with problem at home or inside of them till later.

Just about everyone you meet is a transplant. Different stores open up and shut down a year later. Apartments are converted to condos, leases expire, the roads are torn apart, hundreds sleep on the street, and a major earthquake is never out of the question, above all.

  1. haunting but true. it is hard to feel connected in a city of shadows where people are always passing through. the city itself is unstable and vulnerable considering that she can disappear herself with a violent earthquake.
