Fish Out of Water

Musings and observations about life from an East Coast native now living on the Left Coast in the California State Capitol since 2004. This fish has made her home in Madison, WI (7 years); Portland, OR (2 years); Las Vegas, NV (7 months); Middlebury, VT (3 summers); Marne-la-Vallee, a small town east of Paris, France (6 months); Middletown, CT (3 years); and Marshfield, MA, the fish's coastal hometown 40 miles south of Boston (17 years).

Location: Sacramento, California, United States


Sacramento Winter

Tule fog descends,
lightly cloaking the city.
Mist hushes the dawn.

Steam rises and drifts
across the edge of the pool,
muffling sound and sight.

Buildings disappear
in the ethereal shroud
of NorCal's winter.
