I flew out to New Mexico in January. It had been waaay too long since I’d seen my pal, Kath, and been in the high desert. I totally love it out there. This is the landscape that I have returned to most often in my life.
Actually, I’ve been thinking of this show all summer as Georgia O’Keefe in the Bronx. I tried to go see it in the early spring with my dear friend Bette, but we couldn’t find a date that worked, so we agreed to wait until the fall and some cooler weather to go visit the Botanical Gardens.
There’s The Rainbow Bridge, and a rainbow! Sisters On The Fly take Over The Falls!
This was an amazing trip! The event was blessed with perfect weather. Mark it in your calendar ladies--so the next time we're camping and it's raining, too windy, cold, or too hot, we can say, "Yes. But ahh, remember Sandy Pines?"
Perhaps the title should be, "Half of a Sister Trip is Better Than None?" This is the first time I became ill while on a Sisters On The Fly trip, so that was a new experience. I developed a chest cold/cough that knocked the stuffings out of me in a hurry. So, though it broke my heart, on Saturday morning I packed up and came home early. But, I was there for the beginning of the trip, I met and spoke to some very interesting Sisters, and Wednesday through Friday, I very much enjoyed.
It took a lot of planning, but the little cousins from New Paltz were finally able to meet up at the Bronx Zoo with their big cousins from Long Beach. We had a great day together, walking nearly six miles--and we still didn't see the entire zoo! Need to go back again in the fall when it's a little cooler.
On the 5th of July I went with friend Diana up to the PepsiCo Corporate park, and we walked and talked our way through a few miles of gardens looking at trees and plants, and sculptures large and larger.
It was a fine day for a march, not too hot or humid, and most folks in fine spirits despite everything else that's going on in our world. A one-day vacation.
