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 250: Small City?

I walked home from work this evening, and as I approached the intersection at 10th and N Streets, I saw a woman on the sidewalk putting on her coat. I noticed her curly hair and thought of L, a member of my monthly Book Club, and this impression was heightened when I observed her clog-style shoes.  Once I realized that she was accompanied by a tall, thin woman, I realized that I was correct and that I was just about to walk by both L and M.

Since these two ladies live out in the Arden-Arcada area, it's rather unusual for me to bump into them downtown, and it was such a lovely surprise to see and chat with them briefly. They were headed out to dinner at Mother on K Street (M is a vegetarian) and then to the Capital Athletic Club to see the current multi-member art show, as M will be showing her art there in May/June 2015.

Here's a sample of her work:
