I can't believe it has taken me this long but I finally pulled the long garden table out to have dinner looking over the top of the hill, across the marsh and water. I had a dinner party in mind. I have had a dinner party in mind on that hill for years...12 to be exact. Those who know me would think that I was "fool" for sure but I am finding a second chance and a connection to who I was a long time ago. And...a dinner party on the hill is an example of me finding my way back. I have always wanted to do it. You know, one of those things you dream of but never seem to get around to doing? This sounds like I am about to tell you about a fancy crystal and fan fare dinner but it was simple and it was real and it was happy. I had new friends all around and we all enjoyed the sun as it slowly crept over the marsh getting ready for bed. I had friends at the table NOTICING the light. What I didn't notice was the 8x10 photo of me at the end of the table. They had, as a joke, taken a photo from inside of my long ago modeling days. The 80's in all my glory. They wanted "her" to come to dinner. (I was just thankful they could see a resemblance)...It had to be pointed out to me. I didn't notice. I was too happy to just be at a table, set by friends, eating a simple dinner, admiring the tomatoes from my garden and celebrating the evening together. How perfect.
