PS Write soon.
It was a warm day, warm for April.
People were walking around the Fair with their coats over their arms.
The sun was bright, and there were little white clouds in the blue sky.
The trees wore a light green smile.
At noon the Saturday crowd was very large.
Adults were laughing, children were crying, and everyone was having a good time.
大人们在笑, 小孩子们在叫, 大家都玩的很开心.
A thousand vendors were selling ice cream, hot dogs, and cold drinks.
It was a beautiful, spring morning
the kind you want to last forever.
Later in the afternoon, the sun was not so bright,
the sky was not so blue.
The little white clouds were now large and gray.
There was a drop here, a drop there...
then ten thousand noisy drops.
People shouted and ran in every direction.
Then there was silence, the sun, the blue sky, and a rainbow.
然后一切平静下来, 天空中又出现了太阳、蓝天, 还有一道彩虹.
I admire Claire.
She works all day and goes to school at night.
She knows where she's going and what she wants, and she's willing to work for it.
In my first job, I was secretary.
When I married my husband, I quit.
After I left him, I went back to the same office.
I never thought about other possibilities.
When I came here, I got a job right away.
I was happy with anything.
Now I'd like a change.
First things first.
What skills do I have?
OK. I can do anything.
Come on now, Laura. Be realistic.
罗拉, 你不要这样子了, 面对现实点吧!
All right, almost anything.
I can speak, read, and write English and Spanish.
I can run an office.
I'm friendly and competent.
Uh... there must be more.
Oh, yes, I type and take shorthand in two languages.
Well, then, if you can do all that,
you don't have to work for the Mr. Crawfords of the world!
But, what will I do, then?
Well, what kind of job would you like?
Do you want to work in an office again?
There's so much to think about.
