An Unexpected and Very Welcome Phone Call


Last night, I had arranged the pillows on my bed "just so" to hunker down for a little reading before bed. *lovely bell ring tone* *lovely bell ring tone* I looked at my cell phone to see who was calling, and much to my delight, it was Buttercup! Quick math told me that it was about 1:30 am in New York City, where she lives.


"Hi, Buttercup!"


"You're on California time, right?"


"I am, and you're up way past your bedtime!"


"I'm in a cab, on my way home from an event..."


And so began one of the best conversations I've had in a long time. We laughed and cried, we shared and had girl-talk, we covered her job interviews and my wedding plans.


I marvel that a blog-buddy is now a friend, and one that I imagine I'll have for years to come.


Thanks, Buttercup!

I never thought that blogging would create such a community feeling, but I will say that it is now one of my favorite part of the experience.

Here's to meeting new friends!

Can I tell you how much I love the Starry Night? I have one in my bedroom. I just noticed it tonight on your blog.

Thanks, Dot! I just put the Starry Night up. It is one of my favorite paintings, and I thought it would go well with the "Starshine" theme. :)
