“You’ll be by yourself most of the time,” Beau told me. I smiled. Just what I need. I’ve been wondering where I’ve been lately. It would be good to have some time to be still.
When I first got here Beau was busy with registration and events so I walked past all the plumped lips and gucci bags and found an adirondack chair overlooking a meadow to sit in. I rested my head with my eyes closed and cried a little. I feel like a fish out of water in a resort like this (thank goodness for finding designer clothes second hand before I left!) But when I opened my eyes, I was looking right at the moon. Well hello, friend! Will you be here with me?
Suddenly I felt grounded. I’m the same here, he’s the same there. Throughout the evening it was as if he was showing off for me. Pink plumes! radiant stars! See what I have for you that’s free? Always with a bright crescent smile. I chatted with the staff (a big no no in Napa apparently…ha!) I painted a bit of the beauty around me, I took a few pictures of the grounds, I ate my enormous BLT like I had never learned any manners, and pretended to be Jasmine in my private garden with a double gate.
This morning I haven’t seen the moon just yet, but it’s ok because last night I found him, and he helped me find me.
