Small world

I needed a few things for dinner yesterday afternoon, so I walked two blocks to the Bi-Rite Market. It's a tiny little whole foods market on 18th Street.

As I was queueing to check out, I heard someone say, "Mark?" I turn around and there's Schools Group alum Kristen Hayes. Turns out, she's been working there for three months, the same time I've been living here. She's taking a semester off from college and living with her sister, about four blocks from me.

Makes me wonder if there are any other former Schoolies living in the Mission. I ran into one about nine or ten months ago in Mountain View, and she said she was living up here in SF somewhere.

Speaking of others who live nearby, Acterra's Watershed Council Coordinator Katie Pilat lives a block from me. She bikes to CalTrain every day and takes the train to Palo Alto. Having done that for a couple weeks when I first got the new job up here but hadn't moved yet, I can attest to that making for a reeeally long day.

It's a world of laughter
A world of tears
It's a world of hopes
And a world of fears
There's so much that we share
That it's time we're aware
It's a small world after all

There is just one moon
And one golden sun
And a smile means
Friendship to ev'ryone
Though the mountains divide
And the oceans are wide
It's a small world after all

It's a small world after all
It's a small world after all
It's a small world after all
It's a small, small world

Happy Holidays & a Crickity Crackity New Year!
