There’s no preparing, really, for meeting Lori, aka Lavender Luz, of Weebles Wobblog fame. She’s lovely, as easy to talk with in either small talk or soul-baring conversations, and I wish she lived here.
We’d exchanged some emails, she knew I lived in the live-music capitol of the world, and so when she was planning a work trip here, she asked if I’d be up for getting together. If you ever have the same opportunity take it. It’s kind of like meeting a rock star, albeit a very un-diva-like rock star who blogs. And likes mojitos in the middle of the afternoon.
The perfect part was when we said goodbye, it felt like the beginning of our IRL friendship, rather than the end of the evening.
(And if you don’t read her blog, you really should remedy that ASAP.)
The second perfect moment: I’ve finally been feeling ready to start connecting with more people to let more people in. The trick is how and getting started.
I won’t bore you with a list of the things I’ve been considering. The moment is last night I received a call from the facilitator of my divorce recovery group, asking me if I would be one of the four volunteer facilitators for the group starting Tuesday. I talked it over with my closest friend from the class, who is also volunteering, and I decided that, yes, I am ready to do this. Six or even three months ago I wouldn’t have thought that I’d be ready to do this now, though it was something I might want to do “in the future.” I suppose the future is now. It is so amazing to see visible progress in myself.
