“Friends Club”

Having just completed a large project, made some life-altering decisions, and come to terms with some substantial truths, today felt full of freedom, lightness and potential.

A good night sleep was followed by an afternoon spent with a wonderful friend whom I have known since middle school and who happens to be on spring break — oh the blessed life of being a teacher.  After some unexpected life changes she moved to Long Beach and has flourished.  It is amazing to witness her coming alive in her new community (geographically and inter-personally speaking)!  And living five blocks from the beach never hurts.

We decided to lunch at her favorite bar in the LBC, a mix of dive and Social Distortion.  And I love me some non-sketchy dive bars, especially those with decent mahi-mahi tacos.  There we continued discussing events that have taken our lives in unexpected directions.

I am so thankful for a friend who listens deeply, beyond the words to what the heart is saying.

I am humbled and grateful for days filled with grace in the form of sunshine, good friends, meaningful conversations, walks by the beach, and tasty food + drink.
