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


Day 26: My Office

CPCA is on the top floor of a 4-storey building at the northwest corner of 13th & I Streets in downtown Sac, which also houses one of the Sacramento Fire Department stations on the first floor (to the left of the building but not visible in the photo below).
One of the wonderful aspects of the facility is the floor-to-ceiling windows that line each side of the entire office.  Our main Conference Room looks out onto the trees along I Street (in the left foreground of the photos), which is particularly striking when all of the foliage has sprouted.

My office is on the side perpendicular to the Conference room (on the right in the photos).  I love having so much natural light pouring into the room, although the strong sun can be challenging at certain times of the year, both for warmth and computer-screen reflection reasons!

This afternoon, I glanced out my window and was delighted to see a pair of enormous dragonflies swooping in and around the treetops, as if they were dancing on the breeze in between the leaves.  Having such a lovely aerial view is definitely a benefit of being at CPCA, and I really enjoy working in an office environment that has such a strong connection to the natural world and changing seasons outside our windows.
