This past week, my dear friend Marcie was visiting from Seattle. We got to hang out several times, which was awesome. We played board games, we chatted, we celebrated a holiday and a birthday with the circle of friends we share here.
What was nicest, though, was just being in the same space and talking face to face. We talk nearly every week, either on the phone or via Skype, but there's nothing like sitting at the table, enjoying a cup (or three) of tea and just talking.
She flies back to Seattle today. I already miss her.
