The Tuesday NIght Club

January 5th, 2010

I love Tuesday night drinks with my creative companion. We meet once a week “To talk of many things: Of shoes–and ships–and sealing-wax–Of cabbages–and kings–.” Tonight we discussed our feelings about our mothers, our love of textiles and embroidery, travel, living more boldly, books we’ve read, dinner parties, cosmetic surgery (should we? should we not? should we waive judgment on friends who have? do dyeing your eyebrows count?) and blogging. Somehow, meeting once a week in a setting divorced from our “real” workaday lives makes it easier to expose our deepest selves. Tonight we agreed that 2010 should be a high voltage year for both of us. My first step: finding a flat to rent in London for a month this summer. I’m afraid to put my hand on that live wire, but how can I resist that dare I’ve made to myself?

    Yes, how CAN you resist it!? I once decided to run away from everyone and travel through Europe for a few months by myself–best thing I ever did. Then again, the things that scare you the most are usually the ones you need the most.

    You know the dream of london – the one where you walk the streets as if, yes, you too are a londoner (with an american accent unfortunately) – I have it too :-). And once the kid graduates, and the tuition payments stop, it's happening.

    Enjoying your blog!
