Now, mellower and perhaps more philosophical, I am reclaiming the pleasures of entertaining and re-engaging more fully with things that give me joy. I’ll be teaching for OLLI (Osher Life Long Learning Institute) again this fall, am increasing my volunteer time, taking more classes, playing bridge again (adequately, not great), and continuing to participate in the various concert series and arts organizations that have long been part of my life.
All of which would be so much more fun if I could share them with you! I miss relaxing with a guy over drinks on the patio, walking hand in hand through the booths at a local festival, that quick kiss in the kitchen while we fix dinner together, and helpless laughter over whatever silliness just struck our fancy.
Let’s do something together—how about a murder mystery supper party (!), a drive up into the north Georgia mountains to check out waterfalls, or (could you bear it?) spending a Saturday afternoon at the latest offering of the Metropolitan Opera Live in HD at the nearby theater .
If you happen to enjoy, as I do, living in a dot of blue in a sea of red, great. If you agree that occasional pet hair on clothes and furniture is not a disaster, even better.
I’ve been an active Episcopalian my entire adult life. My faith is important to me but I don’t wear it on my sleeve. Please, no smokers or “trying to quite.”
Drop me a line. Let’s chat!
