I was at a cafe reading a book, listening to people’s conversation. On my left, there were five people, men and women mid 30 to 50, talking about random things such as their job, the other cafe near a trail in Griffith Park……. On my right, a young female writer was having a meeting with her mentor? or with a lady from a publisher? She commented on that young writer’s work. I went back to reading. Life goes on.
