Thanks, I needed that

Had a long day (but a good one). It started out with the clergy gathering for communion with the bishop in a nearby church. I often feel out of place at these gatherings, but I got to sit with a couple of long-time friends, and it affirmed by belonging-even-in-the-midst-of-my-alienation to be there.

Afterwards, these two friends and a couple of family gathered at our house for collinsmom's birthday. We had an ice cream cake made especially for the occasion, as well as other food and Scrabble.

It's nice to know that there are still friends out there. I (and they) need to unbusy ourselves enough to get together and enjoy each other's company. It strengthens one for the long haul of life.

Pooped now. Over and out.
