Firstly, I’m grateful for my first swim in the ocean in ages! …April, I guess that’s not too long ago really…
It was pretty chilly, but enormously refreshing – in more than just a cold water kind of way. There’s something liberating about the ocean, the breadth, the depth, the movement… I’m a little lost for words at present (yes me… it does happen sometimes!)
Another thing I’m grateful for was our dinner tonight with brand new friends. I met Suzanne very briefly yesterday, then today I met her with her husband, and invited them to join us for dinner. Mostly because I have been working on the book all week and ready for some company, and because we’re staying in this fabulous apartment that says “invite people over! …Have a party!”
Oh I love spontaneous ideas that turn into memorable events… Another lovely lady came too, who I hadn’t met, but within 5 minutes of conversation we discovered that she lived in Gilgandra for a time and knew my parents.
That was cool, and the other cool thing, is that Suzanne has written a book and it’s basically ready to go to print, but she’s parked it… until tonight! I can’t wait to see her book, she can’t wait to see mine… I’m grateful for the conversations over a fabulous Indian dinner and the way that you connect with people at the right time.
PS. And we were so “in the moment” and totally enjoying the conversations and no-one thought to pick up the camera, so while I can add a pic of the beach, I haven’t got a photo of my new friends!
