Once a month, my dear friend Dora and I make time for a play date. And not just some slop-shod-devil-may-care date. We compose an agenda and approve it before we get together (through trial and error, we have come to realize that our agenda must be created and emailed--by either one of us--at least two days before our rendezvous.) No agenda, no date.
- Meet at Dora's house.
- Drive to Blossoming Lotus for lunch.
- Drive to Wonderful Terrarium Place in SE Portland.
- Head back to Dora's house and gleefully take pictures of our terrariums in Dora's art studio, sit down and talk about our computers (Dora just got a new business Mac that Elesia is so very jealous of), and then talk about either our recent business trips or current writing projects until we run out of communication bandwidth.
