Molecule of the Day #2079

With blanket and cupcakes, slackline and a massive bowl of fruit, we went out to the park today to meet my friends for a picnic I’d pulled together. For some reason I feel a little silly trying to organize my own birthday party – like I am asking people to celebrate me – but this time I wanted to see a lot of the friends who’ve drifted away over the years, and to see what kinds of reactions arise when my different circles of friends interact.

There’s a certain natural tendency at this kind of event, when strangers are brought together, for them to separate back into their own groups like the layers in a salad dressing. This left me fretting a little at one point, wondering if people were comfortable. Eventually, though, a number them mixed together on this glassy structure, talking and swinging and throwing kooshes, and everyone got along quite nicely.

There are so many wonderful people I know and want to see more, and it’s so hard to balance everything. Today was lovely, and hopefully this summer I’ll manage to see more of the friends I’ve been missing lately.
