The postcard writing party was a blast!!! There were 5 of us, and we each did 10 postcards. And we had wine and a bunch of snacks. We spent a lot of time just talking, girl talk. All of us have some kind of creative bent, most more than one outlet. Three sing. One sculpts and taught acting her whole life, and is also an actress. One of the singers makes jewelry. One is a painter and also one of the singers. The one who is an actress/sculpter is also a writer, like me and I also make jewelry.
There were a lot of creative messages going out on the postcards. We had so much fun. Three of us are close friends, but now all of us are close. We talked about doing this again, but just working on our art together. Or whatever we want but we all enjoyed it so much. I’m so glad I did it, I have been wanting to expand my circle of friends here. I’ve always had a lot of friends, and my circle has been so small for 6 months.
Then we remembered that tonight was the artwalk down on the water front, so we went down there, and my friend Pat and I talked to a lot of artists about the Veterans Art Center. We found a few vets who were selling their art there, and we found a few people who weren’t vets but wanted to be involved in the project, teaching or in some other way. It’s beginning to feel like home when I go. I’ve become friends with a couple of people who have booths at the show, and a few of the restaurant and shop owners now.
It was a great night, there were lots of vendors, lots of people. We are in “season” now and there are tons of tourists, though, this town is still kind of a secret, so it is not full of tourists the way other FL shoreline communities are. There were so many restaurants with live music. One of my bff’s from up north is coming next month, and will be here for the Saturday artwalk in March. I will have a ball with her. She and I were always going out trying to find live music.
I haven’t heard from L for a couple of days, but he’s at Disney now, lol. I am not worried at all. He’ll be home probably Monday or Tuesday, and I know I’ll hear from him then, if not before. I know he’s having a ball with his friends. Looking forward to seeing him when he gets home.
It was a great day, and a great evening. Feeling very blessed, in every way.
Love and light.
