March 22, Friday evening -- Reading Nora Roberts

At the top of the 24th Street BART escalator, selling crocheted hand warmers (on Saturday she'll be selling fried dough buñuelos...which I love), reading La Dama del Faro, by Nora Roberts.
Her favorite author -- Stephen King, especially his book, Needful Things. She reads sometimes in English, sometimes in Spanish.

If she were to write her own book, it would be poetry. For now, she writes poems for friends and family.

It looks like she's selling flowers to me.

Well, you're right. It does look like she's selling flowers, but it's her friend who is selling the flowers. Sometimes another woman is there, too, selling tamales.
