Transcript 17 Since my move twenty years ago from my native Chicago with its mysterious smokes and elevated trains to the sunny (and sometimes smoggy) American Pacific Coast, and especially since my arrival ten years ago at San Francisco (Frisco, as I sometimes call her to myself, remembering Jack London), that other literary city besides London famed for her fogs, I seem to have found at last a modern metropolis I love — and fully worth the time I lavish on her. San Francisco's hills (There are far more than the Roman seven) have tempted me to endless walks; I've mounted most of them, but not yet all. Her ever-changing skies have led me to the roofs again, to renew my acquaintance with the stars, to orient myself, and to watch dally the sun, the planets, and especially the moon as they march through the sky. She's even made me keep as meticulously as I'm able a lunar calendar along with the solar one. Did you know that by a most auspicious circumstance this Seacon began on the first day of the eighth moon to be born in 1979? That day Luna was one day old, a new beginning. Also, San Francisco's central TV tower and numerous skyscrapers and high rises, rising like a modern Stonehenge around my rooftop star-gazing (and fog-watching on other nights, of course), have led me to an obsessive study of them, along with the sky they border. I pronds e you some articles about those activities.
