a couple of newer friends that i plan to make old ones out of

old friends

in two days, i get to meet claire... someone i've known via our blogs for a couple of years, but have never had the pleasure of meeting face to face.

i'll also get to see beth for the second time... in the same place we met the first time.

claire will be visiting from ireland. we are going to meet beth at the flea market that is about half way between where she and i live. three bloggers/photographers. three people who would have never known each other if not for our blogs. three people who have never met until brought together in friendship by our blogs.

i have to say, i've lost touch with both ladies lately... i've not been around much lately. not very visible. but i do hear from each of them from time to time, and so i was ecstatic when claire said she would be in the states and wanted to meet up. and i was so glad when beth invited me to join them at the flea market!!

it's going to be so much fun, i am sure! three ladies with cameras who have struck up a friendship, surrounded by treasures and antiques... what could be better?

i'll be sure to take pictures and let you know how it goes. and claire will be staying with me for a few days afterward. i'll be taking her around and showing her the great city of chicago. you can be sure we will have our cameras with us. we're to go to symphony center for a concert during her time here, too! it will be great fun.

it's hard to believe, but this entire summer has slipped by with hardly a photograph or post to speak of from me. but i had a few occasions to take photos, and i have so much to share. lots of changes and big things going on around here!

if only i could find the time. i'm really hoping the month of october will be more easy-going and slower-paced than september has been. then i might find some time to update my sadly neglected blog.

i hope you are all well. i best be off to bed now. i have much to do tomorrow to prepare for my guest from ireland. hugs to everyone!

what lingers for me is the music. everything we did was musical. your laughter. our choked voices when we cried. our laughter together. it was all music.
