In my garden this evening

This evening I was sitting in the garden just gathering my thoughts when Mrs J walked up. This elegant lady who is more of my MIL’s friend asked about my in laws particularly about my FIL. Soon we were joined by more and more women and before I knew it I had spent three hours just shooting the breeze.

And it was fun. I didn’t realise how much I’d missed this idle chatter of nothing of much consequence but entertaining all the same.

The youngest amongst us must be around 50 while the eldest was in her mid-80’s. But somehow today something gelled and we all went home with lighter hearts and smiling faces.

Actually conversing with real live humans is therapeutic and far more invigorating and rejuvenating than long telephonic exchanges. While Skype, FaceTime and Whatsapp video calls have changed the way people interact, there’s nothing quite like real human contact.

So if you’re feeling blue all you have to do is go down and get some fresh air. You may just meet a friendly face with whom you can chase away your blues.

  1. Such a relevant and real post. I think I stay in my job mainly for the human contact it affords – which makes up for all the annoyance and the 5 am calls. I quite enjoy the bank account too 🙂
    but yes, human company, specially of older women, is so lovely.

    1. I think it works both ways . We older women love hearing the new ideas of those younger than us and wonder why we didn’t think of it ourselves !
