She's a wonderful woman
I met at the Aroma Cafe, one of
my favorite places on earth, and certainly
in Los Angeles. On Tujunga in Studio City.
She was sitting in the library, drinking coffee
and doing a crossword puzzle with reading glasses
on. I wasn't sure if I wanted to bother her, but
couldn't resist - I really wanted to take her photo.
She was delighted when I asked, and took
off her glasses, and smiled this identical smile
at me many times, as I snapped away. After
many people there asked me if I could take
their photo. It's a great place for that - I always
meet great and happy and creative people
there, and create new connections. I
am going to email this to her companion,
and I hope she likes it
as much as I do.
