friends meet under the bridge
and relax into an after-dinner chat.
“I’d be smiling and chatting away,
and my mind would be floating around somewhere else
like a balloon with a broken string.”
Ann Arbor, mi – summer 2019
grandie f and his friends take a short walk
through their neighborhood
(and now mine)
to help bring a few first things over to my new digs.
the friendliest movers ever.
“i get by with a little help from my friends.”
kinder big and small sharing a friendship.
“you have been my friend. that in itself is a tremendous thing.”

a lovely ladies’ weekend spent with friends at the lake house
with a long hike through the winter woods
wonderful comfort foods and wine to share
warm blankets, pajamas, slippers
on one thing leading to another
our favorite cutlery (i prefer small pieces)
to our grown children (we do the best we can)
to humor (what’s funny to one…)
to politics, the state of the world, and more
(each with our own perspectives, experiences, and ideas)
no subject off limits
then spoiling ourselves with magic spa treatments
so relaxing and so powerful in so many ways.
“i feel like i’m a super hero diva and my power is glitter.”
in the midst of the polar vortex
a call goes out
a friend offers to drive us all to the movies
preston- holding down the fort at the theater
sells us popcorn, beverages, and tickets
menu offers a movie combo of cocktails and popcorn
the movie was great
the company was great
felt like we were skipping school
to just have a day of fun
we forgot about the polar vortex outside
we laughed and cried
we’ll never tell who chose which beverage:
coffee, tall soda, sippy-cup ‘o wine.
choose your own adventure.
everyone needs someone who will call them and say,
“get dressed, we’re going on an adventure.”
spending the day off
with a couple of grandies and their neighborhood friends
staying in pajamas
watching ‘the dark crystal’ ( 80s sci-fi movie)
just enjoying life.
“it is nice finding that place where you can just go and relax.”
(a candid moment from my recent fiesta)
my goat and i would like to thank
each and every one of you
who help me
celebrate every day
(the best day ever)
by being a part of my life.
“instead of hate, celebrate.”
