She Left Wearing My Socks

I had a friend visit.

It's one of those feast or famine relationships. We live across the country from one another and we're not made of money or time so the last time I actually laid eyes on her was in the summer of 2011.

She is cool. Like, one of the Cool Kids kind of cool. But as we sat across from each other eating fancy bread with European butter this morning she said, "I'm so amazed by you." And I know her well enough to know that she wouldn't have said it if she didn't mean it.

These last 24 hours have been marvelous fun. My heart is full of love and inspiration. I am grateful for all of my friends, the ones close by and far away, the ones I see all the time and the others who connect more occasionally, for the deep and wide conversations and the quick one liners.

Our feast has lifted me to higher ground.


  1. love this. so very very glad.

  2. I was thinking of you, too, when I told her that despite things going down kind of hard at TheWC I was deeply grateful for the wonderful people it had connected me with.

  3. I love that you got some time together! It's funny too...because I left Saginaw with a pair of your socks back in 97/98. I still have them. Apparently this is what your friends do to you.

    By choice I have a small circle of friends, but those friendships are extremely close and rewarding. We've never shared socks but we're still pretty close ;-)
