Oprah is smaller in person, and quite unassuming. We’re having tea in her bedroom as she gets ready for the day, and I feel as if we’ve been friends forever. She does most of the talking, and my mind tries to process all the details of her life – most of it contrary to what I’ve expected.
Of course her public persona is different from her private life, I realize! Why hadn’t I known that.
“You’re welcome to hang out here,” she offers. It’s tempting, but I have my own things to do.
Besides, it’s all been imaginary. I’ve never met Oprah in person. This has been a dream.
Feels good though. Oprah! I consider staying in bed, safe in Dreamland.
This week we have focused on the imaginary. We’ve explored the night sky,
‘imaginary’ as a possession, the corona virus, imaginary friends, magic and words, our bodies, life’s chapters, books, the paranormal, and the unexpected.
