We have a dear friend who recently had a birthday, and since she is such a dear friend, Terese and I offered our apartment to host a small wing party for her and a few close friends. What follows are pictures of the celebration. Terese with two other good friends. Stacy on the left who has two Masters degrees and our friend Ann, who I mentioned before with degrees in Mathematics, Physics and working on her Electrical Engineering degree, plus is a concert violinist.When we have these parties, most of the people hang out either in the kitchen or on the patio. … and getting down to business on lighting the cake.Some of Gozde’s guests. … and the Pretty Lady watching it all.I have mentioned before, how you never know people until you take the time to visit with them. Below is a picture of Gozde, who has a PHD in whatever she teaches (she has told me but it goes over my head). I have had several good conversations with her on literature and all the creativity it encompasses.I am always amazed, no, I am truly stunned when I discover what is inside those I meet. Gozde is a unique 34 year old individual, that follows her own path in life and never looks back. I am glad to consider her a friend like I do Selin with her gift of dance. You never know what resides in people. I am truly gifted to meet and know these people, who consider me a friend.
