Living Large


my fire-spinning hula-hooping yogini friend Autumn


Autumn is a force of nature.

When you walk down the street with Autumn (she is fondly called the Mayor of Polk Street), you get the feeling that there's nobody she doesn't know in this town.

I'm posting her story today on i live here:SF because she's back from Burning Man and probably feeling a little lost, even though she's back home in the city she loves.

Pay Autumn a visit and say hello.

I have to tell you that on her photo shoot, aside from the backbends and handstands next to the Women's Building in the Misson, she befriended a hula-hooping six-year old and they hula hooped and did yoga together in Dolores Park.

But that's Autumn. When you see her, you'll understand.

Another super-succulent diva, we need many like her. Truly an extraordinary human being. San Francisco you rule!

She looks so full of energy and happiness, though she is sitting still.

Autumn sounds a lot like you. Having a gift for finding friends wherever she goes.
