Duke wanted to start over. The divorce was not simple to handle, plus she was too drained by it all. Once everything was complete, she decided she wanted a change of scenery. There had been an offer sited on her dealer. Duke had not thought about accepting it. But after the battle was over, she wanted a fresh start. So, she sold her business plus began searching for another site to call home. All the kids were grown, plus they said they’d come to see him wherever she went. Duke was speaking to a acquaintance who lived in San Francisco. They talked about the location, the people, the weather plus many other things. The minute she hung up the cellphone on their third conversation, Duke had made up her mind. She wanted to start a new chapter in her life in San Francisco plus perhaps set up a new business. He’d built one before plus knew she could do it again. Her acquaintance happened to mention the growing marijuana industry, which had Duke intrigued. The acquaintance said they could partner plus open a weed dispensary in a location he’d been eyeing for some time. Duke now had a purpose of going to San Francisco, plus this made a transport easier. When she got there, a tour of Golden Gate Park turned into a magical experience. A passion for flowers plus gardens he’d long forgotten came bubbling to the surface, plus the Park became her new safe space in the new city. She spent time reading every inch of the over 1000 acres of Park plus found it therapeutic as she planned the new business with her friend.
