World-building

"Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born."
~Anais Nin
 

Mark and I met a few friends on Saturday evening to celebrate a.) our friend Pat's 40th, b.) our friend Meg's new job, and c.) my birthday. We had a tasty albeit slightly rushed Italian dinner at Forno Diablo (rushed because of my time zone glitch and an overbooked Persian restaurant), and then we dashed off to the Party in the Future at silveringridd's studio where we met new Chicago friends and connected with the wonderful trillian_stars and kylecassidy (as well as their charming archaeologist friend whose name escapes me) in Philadelphia via Skype.

The talented Molly Robison played for us, as did our own dizzydarkhorse, and I was delighted to meet some local LJ friends in the flesh. Following the eating, drinking, and transcontinental online banter, we headed to our old haunt Neo with cillic  and southdeer . Just like old times (except we did not stay at the club until our usual 5am, and we did go home to kiss our sleeping children and relieve my babysitting parents...so almost like old times). All that was missing was a late-night stop for Mexican food. ;)

It was a wonderful birthday week and a memorable weekend. I was so happy to spend some time with dear friends (in person and online)--such creative, generous, interesting people!

When I eventually get around to hosting those salons, they are going to be awesome.
