It is such a beautiful evening for sharing friendship. 🙂 I am so happy tonight. It is Mistress Butterfly’s birthday. We went to an interesting collection of writers who have recently had a residency at the Wheeler Centre.

They were beautiful stories. Something that stood out for me was one writer saying ‘I write to make sense of the world’. I know exactly what you mean! The playwrights were amazing. Theatre is more about what you don’t say, said Mistress Butterfly. The woman who wrote about her grief pouring out through the view of a landscape portrait was surely amazing.

It wasn’t that that made me happy though. It is my friends. How lovely are they? What is it about friendship that just makes you want to jump up and down and squeeze each of their arms and tell them that you care.

I could tip tap happy fruit dance in this beautiful, warm summer air.
