Top 50+ Best San Francisco Sunsets of 2020

Wow, witches. We have just about made it to the end of 2020! Can you believe it? This year went by so fast, yet somehow still managed to feel like an eternity. Are you feeling it?

I may have lost my main source of work and income, ability to see my loved ones, and sense of security about the future, but I still feel an overwhelming amount of gratitude just to be here. To clarify, “here” is by the beach in San Francisco, California.

So I can’t exactly complain. It’s scary as hell to be here and not know what’s next, but then again, I’m here, and no one ever really knows what’s coming next if we’re being honest.

My heart goes out to all of you out there dealing with different challenges this year. I may not be powerful enough yet to magically fix all your problems… so the least I can do is share some of the beauty I was lucky enough to witness this year, right? My hope is to share some beauty and light with anyone who needs it as a reminder that there is still so much good in this world!

There’s a reason we have a whole neighborhood called the Sunset District!

Thought to have been used by the priests of ancient Babylon, this practice reveals secrets of the universe simply by observing natural phenomena.

After all, when shit hits the fan here on Earth, it’s customary to look up at the heavens and ask “WHY??!?!?!?!?”

In honor of How Weird: the origin of how the word “weird” came to be

San Francisco loves its fairs and festivals! My personal favorite among them is How Weird, during which several blocks of the city’s Financial District centered around Howard and 2nd Streets are transformed into a celebration of all things creative, trippy, fun, and weird. Though it normally would have occurred the first weekend in May, it has been postponed like everything else. (The good news is they are having an online livestream version Sunday, May 3rd from 11:11am ’til late!) In its honor, I’d like to share with you one of my favorite fun facts: the origin of the word “weird”!
