At one point, I glanced toward the door
and saw this person walking in! It was Bev - we hadn't visited with one another for at least a few years - only a bit of email contact - but there she was and what a treat!! I had sent emails to all kinds of people inviting them to join us and that she did!! We took time to catch up and reconnect. I realized that out history of friendship has extended for more than 25 years through careers, children, name changes and so much more. She just connected with yet another one of my friends I haven't seen in years. Why do I share this story? For lots of reasons - first of all - as I say - look out for life's synchronicities - dare to take risks - reach out to people and don't believe they are not interested in connecting because they are 'too busy'. Life is tenuous and needs to be lived day by day - relishing the precious present and all of the gifts we are given.
Remember too that WE ARE ALL STORYTELLERS and have lots to share with one another - through photography, through conversations and by creating memories!!
