Sometimes you just have to enjoy life’s unexpected treasures. Last week a friend invited me to a socially distanced brunch at her mountain top home.
There are folks you enjoy simply because they are themselves. This friend is one of them.
We are very different, and yet, there is such value when we think together on projects and on life. Like this old swing, we spend time just being, and learning, and listening and it is good.
Perspectives grow us when we allow them to be heard.
My surprise was complete when I arrived after a lovely drive down the Ozark mounts into the Boston Mountain area. As I entered their home, always such a fine place of seeing artists in action, I was welcomed to the stone patio where a surprised belated socially distanced brunch awaited me.
If you know me, you’d know I love lovely more than most. The table was so well done, simple elegance against the backdrop of a mountain crest view. I travelled near this stone home many times in childhood, but never imagined 50 years later I’d have friends who live within it.
It.was.simply.a.joyful experience and one that reminds me that it matters that we take time for ourselves and our friendships.
What has brought you joy this week?
