A lovely flower in my garden this evening.

Make new friends, but keep the old; one is silver and the other’s gold.


I’m grateful for a new friend, Hillery McAllister, who came and sang for me and a couple of old friends this evening. Her lyrics reflect the wisdom of mindfulness (that I’ve worked so hard to attain) with a tender sensibility that seems inborn. Her song are by turns insightful, fun, moving, serious, and above all full of love. She’ll be playing at the Sage Alley in Paonia and the Creamery in Hotchkiss in the next few weeks, and I highly recommend catching her show if you can. I’m grateful for the sneak preview she shared with her new friends tonight.

  1. I’m grateful for YOU, Rita, and the company of your sweet friends (2 and 4 legged), in the most beautiful setting imaginable. You’re such an inspiration, sharing tidbits and nuggets of your good life with us, the way you do. Thank you for sharing yourself, your home, the bounty of your garden and your sublime cooking! That cake!?!? Will sing for your cake! ❤️❤️❤️
