A Mali Anniversary December 1, 2016

Posted by indigobunting in Uncategorized.

My friend Mali wrote her first blog post ten years ago today. I wrote my first blog post ten months to the day before hers. I am almost as many months older than she, coincidentally. But not quite.

Mali joined a group of writers who were writing about one person each day for a year, restricting word count to the number of years one had been on the planet. We were both forty-four.

Today she wrote about her anniversary, and the project, and our friendly group.

In April, I sent her a string of birds, and today I’m thrilled that she posted a photo of them, living in New Zealand. I stole it and am sharing it here (copyright Mali).


New Zealand is a dream.

I have found it hard to even want to write anything of late. I am busy, and the world is depressing. But I’ll keep at it occasionally because of Mali and our friends. May we all get together in person soon.

Are those indigo buntings that are strung up?

I suppose one of them is!

P.S. Please do keep at it occasionally. I know I only comment occasionally, but I would miss you terribly if you stopped. Just post your shopping list if you can’t think of anything to write…

You’ve made me a bit teary. I so miss Helen, and I love to see her comment. I would also miss you terribly. TERRIBLY! Though thank goodness for Fb.
