SUMMARY: Joyce's reflections after moving to Sunnydale.
She did miss LA's bustle, but Sunnydale's quiet streets were a boon.
The gallery was popular; filling her time, so her friends; absentee when she'd needed them, were not as much a loss as she'd expected.
The social life was disappointingly suburban; satisfying nothing. She was the boss, so not readily invited into the settled lives of her employees.
She felt relief that there was only the one child; but regret there were no more was still keen.
At least Buffy had found friends quickly, though she still seemed so quiet.
Sunnydale had no bookshop, so she proactively thought Book Club.
May the Goddess watch over us all,
