How We Met March 27, 2017

A few years ago, 18 to be more precise, I wrote a memoir which I called 8 Countries, 62 years.  Now at age 80 I plan to write the sequel and fill in a few gaps.  Yesterday at church coffee hour I was asked the conversation starter question – how did you meet the man you married – or words to that effect.

It’s a long story – or a very short story.

Step 1 – we met in Kenya in August 1966.

Poppies MonetGardening for Bio-Diversity Love this image from Rubalcava Horticultural Services in County Wicklow Ireland.  It reminds me also of a field of wildflowers at Airfield, an urban farm near my former home in Dublin.  Or Monet’s famous painting of a field of Poppies.
