Out and About

Boots in Hidden Valley, CA

It’s the time of the year when everyone is out and about.  I’ve lived in the same town for over two decades, so when I’m out and about I always bump into people I know.  Always.  It’s scary (almost).  I can’t leave the house without make-up!

So Monday in the post office I saw the guy who teaches my husband’s tennis clinic, and also a guy I know from work.  Tuesday in Target I bumped into a woman who was a volunteer at the Pasadena Public Health Department about eight years ago…she moved to New York and then moved back to Pasadena earlier this year.  Today I saw my old therapist driving in her cute little Mini Cooper, and then the Chief of Police stood behind me while I was using the ATM (yes, I know the Chief).

It’s reassuring to see familiar faces.  It’s fun to see people from different decades, different eras in my life.  It’s like my history coughing itself up at random as I move around town.

    Oh, that image of the town ‘coughing itself up at random’ is divine. But, seriously, I, too, live in a neighborhood where I know ‘everyone’. I love it.
