Spending the Day with Bunny

Bunny is my best friend from childhood.  More than any other person, it was through her that I found a mooring.  In a sea of chaos she was always there, and still is.

We spent the day together on Friday last.  It was the best feeling in the world.  She is, as she always was, calm, together, insightful and compassionate.  We talked about her mom, whom Bunny is very much like.  We talked about how women of our generation were the first born of the modern Women’s liberation movement.  We talked about those implications and challenges.  And she talked about how she saw me as a child.

While I saw myself as a living mess, she saw the most self-sufficient person she’s ever known.

How amazing is that?!?!?!

I would like to take the second half of my 50th year and reflect on who I was, and how I am still that person.  And how I am making this life what I want it to be.
