It’s late afternoon, and I’m looking east through the big picture windows of my favorite café in Berkeley, California. I’m used to seeing the Green Mountains when I look east, but today I see the Berkeley Hills.

When friends and family from Vermont ask how we’re doing during our five-month sabbatical in Berkeley, California, I usually answer, “It’s been a good experience. But it’s not home.”

Husband: I was thinking we could go to Berkeley for the second half of my sabbatical. We have family and friends there, and I could do research in my old department at UC Berkeley.

Me: Sure, that makes sense.

Husband: And we’d enroll the girls in school in Berkeley for the spring?

Better than the return

of the Redwing Blackbirds

Bob says, jogging by me,

 

this March morning.

In his Khaki shorts.

First green shoots

 

inching up in the road’s

ditch. Two deer across

Spark’s field, browsing

 

thawing hay grass, their breath

visible as glass.

Better in the sense

 

he means we’re here

to say hello, me

Our destination: Orange County, a sprawling collection of suburbs just south of Los Angeles.

Our purpose: To visit my husband’s brother and his family…and Disneyland.
