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 362: Daffodils

This week, we had a rather intensive "site visit" at CPCA to verify that we're providing appropriate services to health centers in California, based on the terms of our cooperative agreement with the Bureau of Primary Health Care (BPHC). We spent 1.5 days with the BPHC consultant and staff, reviewing our work plan, describing our activities, and occasionally defending or explaining ourselves to show that we are in compliance with our contract.


One of my colleagues, S, was very considerate and sweet and gave me a bunch of daffodils and a card to celebrate the successful results of the site visit. S tends to use mason jars on a regular basis, so the flowers are in that distinctive glass vessel and are now sitting near my monitor so that their vibrant scent and colour bring some joy to my day.

They look quite similar to this image:
