For the first time in 10 years, I am facing a calm December. When one works in retail, the month of December is the busiest time of the year. But this year I've finished my scheduled shows, caught up with all my special orders, and now I'm free. So I'm taking a week to join 2 long, long time friends in Naples, Florida. Wahoo! a girls week of relaxation, good talk and doing nothing special. Sounds great to me.
These friends are the ones that know me at my ugliest and still cradle me in love and understanding. They've seen me at my skinniest to my fattest. They've listened to my deepest fears and shared my highest joys. Friends like this are rare because it takes years of shared moments to create such a trust and acceptance. A week together will be a rare treat. As you can tell I'm really, really looking forward to this.
Sadly we'll be missing one friend of our original quartet, she is busy elsewhere; but we'll be thinking of her while we share reminiscences, glasses of wine, new adventures, movies and beach time. See you next time, Norma.
Posts for the next month will be sparse. I'll be more regular come January.
