Another Walk Around West Hartford Center


Katie is a UConn student majoring in psychology, human development and family studies.  She has thought about becoming a counselor, but she works in a women's clothing store and loves retail, so she is rethinking her options.  Katie loves her grandmother's Navajo turquoise necklace,
so I chose a photograph showing it.


John works at The Artisan Vapor, one of those new stores offering flavored and nicotine-infused water vapors as an alternative to smoking.  The store opens officially today.


Tanya is an arbitrator for the State of Connecticut's Department of Labor.  She is interested in mind-body medicine and has undergone professional training.  Tanya is called the Shaking Queen . . . it does not take much to get her to show someone the health benefits of shaking!



Sarah's husband is a software engineer and she is a quilt artist, though with three children (including ten-month old twins) Sarah is short of time for art at the moment.  After living in Boston
for many years, they moved back to West Hartford recently to
raise the family in a lower cost and simpler lifestyle.


And here are the twins!  Elizabeth (left) and William (right).
Two cuties and certainly enough to keep Sarah on the run.

The health benefits of shaking? This is the first I've heard of that.

Kate said...

All of your portraits today show some interesting people (including the twins), but the link to explain "The Shaking Queen" was fascinating. Don't think I'm up to it with vertigo, but the story of her doctor is amusing.
