An “Alice” Day…

May 25, 2010

Yesterday was a great day because I spent time with old friends, I met new friends, I accomplished some tasks, and, tadah, I made some decisions that had been dangling like participles.

Vascilating wears me out. It tap dances on my last nerve and plays hide and seek between my two remaining brain cells. So to have things cleared off the back burner of my thoughts, which allows me to move forward, feels liberating.

Meeting new people is not new to me! But it sure creates fresh breezes that fan my life. Today friends introduced us to some neighbors we had not previously met. They then gave us a tour of their home….which was an eclectic world of charm: they had an antique table from England, an authentic Italian pizza oven, an original large photograph of Churchill, arched doors from Europe, a huge fish tank full of brightly colored tropical fish with live coral, and an outdoor garden straight from New Orleans.

Afterwards we all sat on the porch and shared stories. When I left I felt like Alice in Wonderland…I had fallen into a new adventure full of enchantment.

So here’s my recommendation for your today; settle up old business, risk making a mistake, move past indecision (it’s a time-wasting, energy-zapping trap). Then make a new friend, sit a good porch, share stories, and hug a pal.

When you’re done let me know if you don’t feel better too!

  2. Patsy, I hv a great habit of meeting new people; it colors life n infuses interesting texture & dimension. I love it.

  3. Oh Patsy,

    That sounds like a delightful way to spend a day. O.k. I’ll work on it.
    Sure beats the way I started my day today. I posted a note to myself about it at Hospitality Lane.
    I needed this encouragement and exhortation so much.
