...and it is beautiful.
I did not get to sleep last night.  That is, I got to bed then remembered something I had forgotten, and once I got up again, I was awake.  My ride arrived promptly at 4 a.m. and we were off and running.
My dear friend Carmen picked me up at the airport and we drove through traffic, then beauty, visiting as we had not in years.  A great gift.  Then we arrived at our friend Diana' magical place overlooking the water, and full of quirky and magical beauty inside.  Oh yes, and a very furry maine coon cat.
Yet another friend whom I had not seen in years joined us this evening.
A celebration all round; and I would like to describe it more, but I am exhausted and cannot function for one more minute.  More tomorrow.
