This morning at the park I caught up with Cat, a woman I haven’t seen in a while.
We had first reconnected* at this very same spot soon after I moved to Providence. (*Reconnected because she was a student of mine when I taught at boarding school!?!)
Anyway. This morning. When I saw Cat drive up, we had just finished our stroll around the park. Daisy had already hopped into the back, and I was pulling down the hatch.
“Come walk with me,” she called out. And so we did. The weird thing is, she is now 39. The age difference that seemed so vast when I was her high school teacher has melted away.
And? I learned today that during her acupuncture studies she got a master’s in herbal healing!! <–!!
Exactly the direction of study I want to go for the second half of my life.* She even turned me on to a place right here in Providence where I can start weekly classes.
I tell ya’. Miracles every day people.
You just gotta believe.
ALSO– CROILA!!!! I have seen your comment in the last post and YES! I will be so happy to ramble on my favorite subject and perhaps even grab a couple of old ones and pull passages out to share?
*possibly I haven’t shared this with you? oops, my bad. yes — that is where I am headed. back into the garden, people!! xo
