Today I was ..again bowled over..by infinite charm..in driving through my little town..
We had to go to our new Costco..for an eye exam for Jacques..
I went along and said I would wait in the book department..
we thought 20 minutes max..
it was 45..
I roamed the aisles..and met a fave person..my hairdresser♥
And another girl:)..I have "seen" known for years..and lately it seems everywhere we are..we bump into each other.
We are never at a loss for words..she is bubbly and energetic and so well traveled ..and creative..and I feel as if we have really known each other for years:)
The 45 minutes flew by:)
I cannot imagine a better 45 minutes in Costco apart from when I used to go w/ my daughter and her 3 boys when she did not work outside her home..
Thank you J..for real conversation:)
We both appreciate every view..every glance ..here and there where we live.
When we came home..I thought:"Oh just go..go see"~
And I did..I got in my own car and spent a little while driving 5 minutes away..
And repeated in my head what I told Jacques the whole way out today.
We live in Paradise.
And then..I bumped into a dear dear girl..and met her dear dear friend..
and we chatted..she.. her friend and I..and we all agreed..this is paradise..
we all have different definitions in life.. for value.. regarding paradise ..the beach can be paradise for me.. a quiet beach.. snow ..w/ it's sparkles and my snowshoes or x-counrty skis can be paradise.
May! With it's greens and ferns and sprouts..
A sleepover w/ my Littles..
a dinner with la familia..
it's as if it's in neon lights..for all to see..
but usually you feel solitary ..as if the magnificent show was for you and you alone.
To be grateful.No matter what.
And all day in my head...
this song kept playing..but about people and autumn.
