there’s that woman

There’s that woman, where I work, in her fifties, always serene and perfectly well-behaved, her beautiful voice never at the wrong volume, speaking in the right tone, her Catalan speech rich and genuine, a pleasure to listen to. A person you instantly feel you could confide on, reliable, in ever control of the situation, smart and wise, who knows her stuff and is willing to share it with the people who attend her informal, free classes of traditional dance and music. A self-possessed woman who walks on top of the world and cares for it, thinking globally, acting locally and always sure she’s doing the calmed right thing.

Can’t stand her.
