Ah-Ha Moment| Ah ha moment: Did you have an “ah ha” moment this year? Was it a big one? Or just a small enlightenment?
There was one Friday evening in July when my friend JRA and her husband and I sat by the Hudson, and ate lobster rolls, and watched the sun set over the Palisades.
It was the Friday before my ex-husband got remarried, but I didn’t know it when we’d made our plans to meet. It was also the Friday before my hip surgery. So a lot was on the line that weekend.
But in those small moments, on a docked barge, eating seafood and drinking wine, and gossiping and talking about nonsense, my life felt like mine again.
