139. The Last Dance

I woke up. Obviously, my thoughts jumped to Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who died yesterday. “An amazing woman who lived an amazing life”, I was so proud of the President in that one moment, when he spoke relevant and truthful words.

My morning dream was culminating with a dance.  There was an old woman in a sparkling gown.  A lifelong friend, she asked me to watch an act of crescendo.  There were so many people in the house, and so much distraction.  I made my way to the bedroom.  If she joined me, we would have some space and privacy.

The room filled with people, all women of various ages, chattering, bubbling, sitting on the bed and floor.  So much for privacy.  She slinked through the door with Hollywood drama, introducing her dance.  Exotic birds flew toward her from the shoulder of an onlooker.  

She was speaking of being witnessed.  Her voice elevated, she called out, “You were born when I was young, and have seen the epic moments of my entire life.” It was a long, gracious and powerful existence.  

And then the dance began.

I woke up.  Obviously, my thoughts jumped to Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who died yesterday.  “An amazing woman who lived an amazing life”, I was so proud of the President in that one moment, when he spoke relevant and truthful words.

“An amazing woman who lived an amazing life”

Ruth Bader Ginsburg born March 15, 1933 died September 18, 2020.

The woman in the sparkling gown represents different people to each of us.  And we appreciate each moment “she” shares!
