Tea with Cindy

Did something today I haven't done for probably 20 years. I was invited to an afternoon tea with a bunch of ladies, and I actually went. This is because it was to have a chance to visit with a member of our writer's critique group, West Side Gang, whom we have not seen for quite a while.

Cindy (on the right) has been battling a serious health issue, and agreed to come to a tea at Seema's house after a therapy session. She told me it was all right to take her picture, and we all think she looks great after all the months of treatments.

We did all the things you would expect. We chatted, we chatted some more. We shared other health stories (never sure this is helpful to someone who is ill, but Cindy seemed to be OK with it). We talked about the arts in general. We talked about writing.

We ate delightful sandwiches and treats provided by Seema (whose picture I did not get, unfortunately), with some really good tea (in my opinion).

Cindy read us a humorous, but true, story she had recently written and we laughed a lot. That's always a good thing.

We probably tired her out too much before her husband picked her up, but hopefully it will be worth it to her for the memories of time with friends.

In other news: I wrote a chapter and maybe, maybe, maybe came up with the missing plot piece that DMS Mistletoe needs to complete the story line. That should make the writing go better.

I agree. The afternoon was delightful. The variety in our conversations, the laughter and the sharing was perfect. I'm so glad you came, Joan.

It sounds like a wonderful afternoon. Anything that includes laughter is a winner.
