A Week of Conversations

“I’m quite happy to spectate,” I offer when the cry goes out for team members.

It’s Friday night, and darts are the big event at the neighbourhood clubhouse.

“No! No! You must play.  Everyone plays.”

This is our second social this week in our new community, and I must say the locals are friendly and welcoming.

“But I don’t know how to play.  I know nothing about the game.”

“Never mind.   It’s all for fun; we’ll teach you.”

So, I am swept up into a foursome with three strangers, and before you know it, I am hitting the board – no match for the two male opponents – but my partner and I are holding our own.

“Are you having fun?” someone calls out from across the room.  There are three boards in use, and my laughter must be drawing attention.

“Can’t remember the last time I laughed so much,” I respond.  “My cheeks are hurting.”

Afterwards, Ric and I walk home, hand in hand, glowing from the experience.

To think that earlier in the week, I was worried about meeting the new neighbours.


This week’s focus has been on conversation – the conversations we have with ourselves, imagined conversations with pets and nature, remembered conversations, conversations observed and those we crave.

It has been an interesting week, and if you haven’t taken time to visit the various submissions, please go back and do so now.  Our community is growing!

Thank you to all this week’s contributors:

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.

  1. Hi V.J. I noticed that my link above brought me to this week’s”point of view’ and not ‘conversation’. Also a few of the other blogger’s link didn’t bring me to their offering. I hate scrolling to find the right one and then can’t find it.

    1. Sometimes I link to the blog post sometimes to the blog to encourage new readers. Sounds like this is just annoying. I’ll link to posts next time. Not sure what happened with your link. Sounds like major brain fart on my part
