She Took Me In And Gave Me Breakfast
Stories are the thread of connection. They’re like promiscuous sex. We can dally and fool around, or we can go all the way.
I’m glad I went all the way with Debra Fetterly.
Debra lives in greater Los Angeles. I found her writing a little over two years ago. Whether she writes about California’s history or its wine, its challenges or her San Gabriel backyard, she imbues her words with the welcoming soul that she is.
I was lucky to meet her in person last November. But on this trip-to-Australia-that-won’t-end, I got to spend an afternoon with her. At her house. In the very backyard she describes. I met Darwin the turtle and shared a cupcake with her granddaughters and saw Jay’s exquisite model train.
In the harried pace that is travel today, it was a gift to sit in a garden. To nurture connections. To slow down and just be.
Thank you Debra and Jay and the rest of the crew for letting us crash a family gathering. We’re glad you chose to spend part of our two-day delay with us.
