Sometimes I think I left bits and pieces of my heart in San Francisco, and of course this includes Oakland. The warehouse fire is an absolute tragedy, and my heart breaks for all affected. So far there have been 33 confirmed deaths in the 'Ghost Ship' warehouse that also served as an artists collective.
The artist community in the Bay Area is so magical, and one of the things I treasure most deeply about the years I lived there. The dreamers, the makers, the whimsy.
I started Kinda Kind while living in San Francisco. The creativity and passion that I witnessed and felt while there was extremely influential on my personal development, and inspired me to follow my dream and create whatever this beautiful thing is that we have going on over here.
Let this serve as a reminder to be good to one another, live passionately, and to never lose your whimsy. Life is unpredictable.
