Hello my Lovelies. Hope all is well with you today.
Yesterday, in my heart, I said farewell to my home, Quinta de la Luz (House of the Light) in San Miguel de Allende. The sky was filled with the incredible blue I have come to associate with this part of the world. Not even a cloud dared to come near. The sun shone warmly upon us, the wind blew very softly, only to keep us cool, and even in my imagination, the day could not have been more perfect.
I'm sure I feel much better today, simply because I was hugged and hugged and hugged yesterday. About twenty six of my dear friends gathered in the courtyard, roaming through the house, the studio, the terraces, settling here and there to chat .. then moving on to enjoy other guests company. The food my friend Delani prepared and served and superb, the wine and juice from the hibiscus blossoms, delicious, the Spanish guitar music Salvador played on this guitar absolutely divine.
And so, the day passed quickly. It has been my tradition to hold a Soiree in the garden each year I have been here. They have all been exquisite. This one, however, will stay with me in my heart as I make the transition to the next chapter of my story. Ron took hundreds of photographs, which makes me so happy. I will have a wonderful records of the last gathering. They should be ready in a couple of days when I will share them with all of you.
For now, I am basking in the light of yesterday. Remembering each conversation, each hug, each beautiful wish from my friends for health and happiness. Memories I will carry in my heart forever.
I have a meeting with my mover and shipper this morning. Things will begin to get busy now. In the meantime, some friends are coming over for a poetry reading in the afternoon on Wednesday. We all write, and share our poetry with each other, eat some lovely food and drink a little wine. Another beautiful afternoon to look forward to.
Thanks so much for dropping by. There should be photos in a couple of days. They will be fun to see and I will share them immediately. :o)
Take care my Lovelies. Enjoy each fleeting moment.
