(5) Things we love…#158

Posted in Things We Love

I have never seen fires in Los Angeles in December! But there you have it: no humidity, drier than dry and hot. Combined with hellish winds that are not planning to abate until Saturday, four fires exploded, one in the center of the city (Los Angeles is full of large parks and canyons) that closed a major freeway and prevented thousands of people from going where they were supposed to. I will be picking up branches and ashes for days – but, hey, my house is intact (for now)- not something far too many people can say.

As I started my morning with a mug of coffee, reading allegations of sexual misconduct by men as varied as Roy Moore, an aspirant US senator, and Louis C.K., I must confess that, now that the floodgates have burst and in the wake of so many women’s bravery, I walk a little taller, I feel a little stronger than before. Have a great weekend.

Gone from these virtual pages but not forgotten. Certainly not forgotten by me as we are still in each other’s pockets on a regular basis – sofagirl I mean. She still contributes to this blog when my ideas are mediated through her opinion and by sending me suggestions for this weekly column. She is actually much more active than I am when it comes to scouring the web for the weird and the uplifting. The first three offerings come straight from her laptop. Enjoy your weekend and, if you are in the States, the extra hour of sleep on Sunday.

When I invite you over, I meant it. I mean: Sit down. I will take care of you. I will buy the food and get the drinks and set the table and do the cooking, and I will clean up after. And when I come to your house, you will do the same. I will get to have the honor of being a guest. To perfectly show up, 10 minutes after the appointed time, with a bottle in hand for you, to bring my outgoing, conversational self, my good mood, my appetite, and to then enjoy all that is offered to me, and to then get my coat at the very end and leave without having lifted a finger. It is the greatest thing of all time.

Next week we will let go of Summer time, our days will become shorter, and apples and oranges will fill our fruit bowls for months to come. I look forward to all of it (probably because sub-zero temperatures and snow blizzards are not in the cards where I live). For now, I will enjoy the last truly hot weekend of the year. Have a great one, wherever you are, whatever the weather.
