The Definition of Beauty

June 17, 2020

You have me thinking about an event from three or four years ago, and it combines beauty and joy for me. Pretty often among my group of friends, we get together and have just big gatherings with each other.

So, this was a dinner party we held in The Alley for 120 of us, and we cooked, and we ate together. We had like three courses, and I think, especially in this moment of being separated, that’s really been something I’ve been deeply appreciating. The connection, the community that I’m part of.

My kids as well. I mean, their birth, moments that they’ve had, those things come to mind, too, but especially right now with physical distancing, I’ve been thinking a lot about how much I will delight in the beauty and joy of being in the company of others, hopefully in the near future.
