I ring the bell while peering through a glass door.
"Hey Gi-r-l!", coos our hostess as she opens the door and embraces me in a hug.
"So glad you could make it!"
She leads me through the foyer to her spacious living room.
This is my reentry into the Divas Book Club.
The ladies take turns standing and extending their arms to me.
Their hugs are honest and strong.
I feel as if I've never been away.
We bring ourselves up-to-date over Grapefruit Margaritas
and then make our way to the dining room
for dinner and politics.
Oh, I've missed this!
Finally, we discuss possible books for the September meeting.
and a field-trip to the local Barnes and Noble later,
we decide on one.
The next meeting place?
