Today my friend Gail stopped by on her way traveling from West Hartford, CT to Syracuse, NY. Reconnecting with old friends is heartwarming. We told each other stories about our lives and caught up. With such a soul friend, even though time had passed, it was as though we had seen each other yesterday; the conversation was immediate, free, deep, and easy.
In our past, we shared raising and home-educating our children; we found we embraced similar spiritual interests; we were both involved in creative pursuits involving textiles, and we’ve shared the joys and challenges of life.
Gail reminded me that, no matter the time and distance between friends, we are never far apart. For this I am grateful.
At the end of our visit, we enjoyed a Japanese meal together. All in all, it was a very satisfying day.

After being away and entertaining guests, I’ve had many little details to attend to here. It feels great to make these available, at last! Check out the events site for details and other happenings.
After spending a week at a science and religion conference with more than 100 people,
I came home to my husband’s college reunion at our home, with about twenty of his college friends, some of whom he hadn’t seen for forty years.
This morning I was on a radio show about the upcoming series for women Growing Older, Growing Wiser: Becoming an Elderwoman –
and now I’m planning for the annual campout of Wellspring Haven.
The weekend after that, I’ll be attending a college reunion of my own.
It’s been an intense summer of gathering in communities of diverse people. And it will continue into September, when I’ll be attending a Céile Dé gathering.
So much richness, and so little time to blog about it!
