Girlfriend time in Easy World

| | Comments (0)

Dang! I keep doing this—I delay in blogging then I have too much to say! Oh well. I guess fighting my natural inclinations is futile and certainly not helpful. I’ll just tell you about today and then if I have energy to catch you up on the other stuff that’s happened lately, I’ll do that soon.

This morning, my dear friend since junior high,
Donna Michael, flew into Denver for INATS West (International New Age Trade Show) a day early, so I picked her up at the airport and we headed to Evergreen, the lovely foothills town that Rick and I so love to visit. We had a lovely lunch at Creekside Cellars, the little winery I’ve talked about before. The creekside tables were all full when we got there and there were several parties ahead of us waiting, so I just tuned into Easy World and we settled in to wait. I’m not sure what their reason, but apparently several of the groups decided to eat inside instead of waiting, so we were moved up to being first in line and managed to only have to wait about 15 minutes for a table over the creek, which was no problem since we had so much chatting and catching up to do.

Donna didn’t know much about Easy World  (you know how it is—sometimes it seems the people who know you best seem to pay the least attention to what you’re doing professionally—especially when you’re a spiritual teacher—you know, the old “a prophet is not without honor except in his own country” thing!). So she asked me to tell her about it, so I did, and, of course, she caught right on. The whole day turned out to be in EW as we kept invoking EW with everything just flowing together perfectly. I won’t go into all the details now, but lots of little magical happenings occurred, and it was easy for Donna to get a feel for what choosing Easy World is about!

After lunch, we went over Squaw Pass (where Rick and I usually go to view the fall leaves) to Idaho Springs. Donna had never seen the Rockies, and though that was not our original plan, once it presented itself to me, it seemed the perfect course of action and it was—we saw some absolutely spectacular views. Another great reason to do it was that it was cool and lovely there and it was 99 degrees in Denver this afternoon!

When we got to Idaho Springs, I managed a parallel parking job that I’m still shaking my head over. I got in a space so tight, there were what seemed like only a few inches between me and the cars in front and behind. I honestly don’t know how I pulled it off other than invoking EW! I wish my driver’s ed teacher could have seen it! We stopped in at my favorite coffee shop there and chatted still more while a rainstorm blew in and blew out.

Then  we stopped at the grocery store for Donna to stock up for her stay (she’s staying at a hotel by the Merchandise Mart), and headed back to Denver, which we made in record time even though it was rush hour. I dropped her off at her hotel and I went home and fixed dinner for the girls and Rick.

It was such a great day! Donna and I both have mellowed, so we were quite easy-going (love that term!) and it was a wonderful, soul-nurturing time of sharing  and just hanging out together. I had needed some “girlfriend time” and that just filled the bill.

Tomorrow night Rick and I are going to have our belated anniversary dinner (I was busy packing for my NC trip on May 31, our actual anniversary date) at one of our very favorite special occasion restaurants, Mizuna. I’m excited!
