Old friends meet again, rekindling the atmosphere of gatherings past. They come together to celebrate but also to remember. Glasses are filled and spirits rise as the competition intensifies.
They haven’t seen each other for some time. Immediately, the happy chatter begins. Their laughter tinkles like the music they have come to make.
Friends happily wield paintbrushes in return for drinks and cake. They transform our half-done spaces into wonderlands of colour and changed light.
Home-made, I place them lovingly into a box; a gift for supportive friends. As I pack them in with paper towels, I think of the pleasure they will bring and I am happy.
I place the brown, ceramic dish of food I have cooked in the centre of the table. It sits, steaming and glistening. It contains all my hopes of a delicious meal which we will enjoy with our friends.
