The local Women's Center was having a celebration of 30 years. There was face painting station, a flower weaving station and Ilka and me doing affirmation cards. I met the most incredible women there, made some new friends and had a totally wonderful time. I even got my face painted, that's on someone elses camera but I'm sure the picture will show up at some time or another. After the party we went shopping. Now in New York I would have gotten some funny looks with half my face painted in butterflies and flowers. Not here, nope just another normal face in the crowd.
That blond lady in the foreground is another new friend named Vivian, very funny lady.
Then there were those who thought they had found a free card making station i.e. Birthday, Anniversary, New baby, Get Well LOL" Hey where's the envelopes for these things"
Ilka, sweet soul that she is, found a deep Psychological meaning where I just found a lesson in the human experience and their feelings of entitlement . I am truly a tainted new Yorker LOL It was all about the fun...
The party was a wonderful experience in cultural differences and I enjoyed every minute of it.
