Sat in front of the tele last night, sewing baubles back onto the couch cushions. That done, I decided to sew the button back onto a jacket, mend a small hole in a t-shirt and hem the legs of some pj’s.
Now, even though there’s a box full of jewellery I need to fix, I’m retiring this goal as done!
Funny, I didn’t really know Kate that well, following her entries only more regularly in the last 8 to 9 months before she passed away.
Still, her spirit of life lives in my heart and mind frequently these days and never moreso than when I get to ‘Dance’!
It’s difficult to explain in words but Kate’s passing and the love which flowed from this community to her in those last few days of her life, really affected me.
So came about this goal and I made a promise to myself that whenever I had the chance to dance, I would give Kate a moment to dance too.
A memorable moment came about whilst D & I were in Italy last year….
We were enjoying a Campari whilst admiring the Museo Storico Navale (Naval History Museum) building when I noticed two men across the canal singing and playing guitar. A light shower of rain had just fallen and their harmonies added to the mood of the cool afternoon breeze. Something made me want to get up and dance? I pleaded with D to cross the canal with me and dance to the Italian serenade on offer. By the time he agreed the men were almost finished their song but we managed a sway and a mooch, a twirl and a dip and as romantic as it was, I thought of Kate in that moment, of our precious Seasonsoflove

Don’t know if everyone has this happening again but I’m super glad to see all your avatars in my window :-D
