Where will the nice people live?

And she checked out of the overpriced Bay Area housing market.

Permanently.

San Francisco, was, once upon a time, a very enlightened and compassionate community.

The bottom line has become the bottom line.

And the counterpoint — the heart-centered people who create the balance to the business — that community is getting squeezed out.

If the people who nurture and take care of things and create beauty — can no longer afford to live in San Francisco, who is left?

When owners forcibly evict a tenant just to make a few more bucks, I wonder if they consider the life-altering tailspin it sends tenants into. It can ruin lives for many years — or end them. Tenants are human beings. Not just cash flow.

Right now, as I write this, I am being booted out of my own living space.

But survival hardens our hearts.

Many full time positions have been replaced by freelancers and gigs. Freelancing by its very nature is a difficult occupation in the Bay Area because most landlords will specifically state: “No working from home.”
