Tonight's blog is dedicated to Jesika and Jade, two of my dearest friends with whom I shared a glass of wine and a bit of bread and some yummy salads and all of our souls fell out across the table as we ate and drank and were merry.
We sat beneath a canopy at Babrix in Silverlake and we had a lovely, lovely time.
I am eternally grateful to have these two beautiful friends along with me as we all journey through the kaleidoscope of our colorful, colorful dreams.
I left a busy busy day behind me, my mind was spinning, my body was in overdrive, my dog was awaiting my return, I'd zoomed through my to do list, walked my 3 mile walk, worked my 4.5 hours on the West Side and drove across town to see my friends. And the moment I came to sit down with them, I followed their laughter and knew where they were sitting. I was at once calm.
And reminded, as Elton John sang, How wonderful life is now you're in the world.
We have our to do lists -- also known as our want to do lists -- but we must always remember that without our friends, these lists are mere sheets of paper with ink. Our friends make our lives mean something.
And so, to Jesika and Jade, and all of you little blades out there, reading along, thank you for taking my cyber-hand and running along the yellow brick road with me. May you enjoy this song as it is dedicated to all of you...
Thank you for being in my world.
