Tuesday - Memories, Storytelling, Socks
A special memory
Ellouise with the San Francisco Gorilla Girls.
Getting back to talking and remembering my days as a feminist activist for equal rights for women brings up some unexpected moments.
After a storytelling at the California College of Arts and Crafts these two great activists showed up. They were called out by my friend, artist Eleanor Dickinson.
Thank heavens they were not after me - they came to give hugs. You know, no one ever knows who is behind the mask - and they don't speak to protect their identity.
1. Something has hexed my desktop computer. I have to dismantle and take to Mr. Boon today with hope in my heart that he can fix it - or else - well, I just don't know what all I will lose if he can't fix it. But I know it would be like brain surgery.
I know. I know. Back-up. Back-up. And I do - every so often. Okay. Okay. That's not enough. Lesson learned. Hope I do not have to pay too dearly for the lesson.
2. Visions of Jonesborough and the National Storytelling Festival are dancing in my head. People we will see, stories we will hear - and the laughter.
3. Revisiting the week-end. Remembering:
* Fun conversations and good time spent with Granny Sue, Larry, Richard and Debbie.
* Blue skies and warm days in the mountains. Pleasant driving. Beautiful vistas.
* A touch of Germany in the Bavarian Resturant where we had lunch in Hagerstown. Interesting collection of authentic steins brought back memories of Bavaria when Jimmy and Monica lived in Munich. Jim and I broke a lot of plastic so we could spend time with them and our oldest grand-daughter.
* Just being with Jim - which is always a plus for me.
* Delicious home-made brownies at the League meeting - what a lovely spread of goodies appeared.
