One of the pleasures of the internet is the opportunity to connect with people who aren't in your immediate circle - and become friends. Within a few weeks after I started this blog, I found my way to Derfwad Manor, where the wonderful Mrs. G writes about life, kids (now grown!), women and the men we live with. She was kind enough to publish my writing on the collaborative blog The Women's Colony, which was a real creative boost for me.
So I was delighted to be able to meet her in person during out trip to Seattle. We arranged a lunch date at a small Tex-Mex restaurant in Madison Park. [The Man I Love] joined us.
We had margaritas, good food, and a great conversation. The three of us hit all the topical third rails you're not supposed to touch when you first meet someone - religion, politics - and found that our views were simpatico. We shared tales of our kids and our aging parents. We talked about the paths we traveled, and where we hope to go next.
Mrs. G - I'm so glad to have you as a friend! (and those glasses totally rock!)
