power down.

Standard

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

long discussions

on one thing leading to another

ranging from

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.

weekend in ‘the d.’

Standard

took a ride on the q line train

in detroit city

on it’s inaugural weekend

so full of happy people

got off at campus martius

a downtown oasis

sat on the beach

created right in the middle of the city

for outdoor summer adventures

 enjoyed wonderful cuban jazz

live and in color

plus a little guy who couldn’t resist sitting in with the band

 a natural improv artist of the highest order

the energy in the city was contagious.

“a city isn’t so unlike a person. they both have the marks to show they have many stories to tell.
they see many faces. they tear things down and make new again.”

– rasmenia massoud – broken abroad

 

comfort.

 we lie around

on a rainy afternoon

listening to the radio

to hear

one of us

a first-time storyteller on npr

as she shares with the nation

her bittersweet tale

there are 11 people of all ages

4 dogs of all shapes

with all

the food, drinks, games

and

good cheer

we could possibly need

and no timeline or agenda

on this long lazy weekend

all tucked in together

in 1 cozy house

on 1 pretty lake

and all that

equals

1 huge level of comfort.

it is one of the blessings of old friends

that you can afford to be stupid with them.
