I'm going to have a party. I've never hosted a party and it's high time I did. I think it's the epitome of creating community. I admire anyone who troubles themselves to invite, clean, cook and serve their neighbors for the purpose of getting to know them and honoring the relationships. That small gesture can make a difference in well being; knowing that one is part of a caring group. It's hard for me, because I'm lacking experience. All the years with an unpredictable, spiteful mate kept me from risking an embarrassing disparagement. That has been my excuse. Until now.
