Intimacy Snippet

a few weeks after moving to san francisco, i started getting asked for directions. i liked that i was passing for a local. the queries have continued but are gradually getting harder. in the beginning i got easy landmark questions. the other morning i was asked where to find the nearest public parking. i had to pause for a couple of seconds because i don’t even own a car. but i realized i still could confidently answer. afterwards i had to smirk because suddenly san francisco felt like “my” city. funny how knowledge often creates intimacy.
