“Once in a blue moon” is a phrase that defines something rare. It’s that thing you never thought would happen, like a chance encounter that leads to love, or that job opportunity that fits you to a “T”, or that home you never thought you’d find now within your reach.
You never know how a dream will come true.
My wife remembers her first trip to Berkeley when she was a young girl. Something about the place captivated her. She loved the “old world” feeling of the campus, the gorgeous homes in the hills, the views of the bay, and tai chi practitioners doing the form on the North Gate lawn.
She knew she had found the home of her dreams but couldn’t imagine this dream coming true;, yet step by step, life lead her here–with a short stint in Sacramento and a slightly longer one in Los Angeles in between.
Her journey back to the Bay Area started with (a once in a blue moon) call from a friend who lived in Berkeley who presented with the opportunity to work at Fantasy Records on Dwight Street. She left L.A. at once.
I ended up working there myself as the installer of their sound system. I needed business cards, and she was the designer who made them up for me. After a while we married, and then came three kids and a lifetime later. We’re now living in a home in the hills with a view of the Bay.
And, by the way, she loves her ongoing Tai Chi practice.
