Talking with strangers

On the Metra platform I met a French woman here to speak at a literary conference. She is a literary translator and had a nice conversation. As my stop came up I introduced myself and offered my phone number if she wanted to reach out over the weekend. Not only could I see the surprise in her well poised face but the blonde American sitting in front of us visibly jumped and looked back. I assured my new friend that I have traveled much and always loved a locals perspective. I also cherish my international community and its diversity. I invited her to women’s arm wrestling Saturday night. We will see if she reaches back.

I was in the food biz for over 20 years and still love food more than ever. I knit, create, write, mother, date, live and get angry. All I share here and hopefully with some kick ass pics to boot.
