Better late than never! Right? I’m an “on-time” person and submitting this blog so long after I had my time with the scarf is not like me. I think technology got me...I could figure out how to create a whole new blog, but I couldn’t seem to add to our blog! Grrr
I went to The Hangar and met Megan, a freshman, to receive the scarf. Megan isn’t someone I would have met now had it not been for the scarf sisterhood connection. We spent a few minutes talking and learning a little about each other and why we wanted to be part of the journey of the scarf.
I feel like the scarf was my partner during it’s time with me. It got to ride in UD’s blue Cavalier that I use while working in the student neighborhood. It was windy on Friday and I took some pictures of the scarf blowing in the wind. Somehow that seems symbolic. Our lives float along on the wind carried along faster than we realize. On Monday, the weather had changed again and it was cold, so the scarf kept me warm as I visited houses in the student neighborhood.
It was meaningful to know that the scarf had been with other women and was moving on to more women. We are connected.
My hand-off to Charity was quick, but we made time for a good photo-op! I saw Charity the next day at a book discussion (The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks) and it was cool to be able to say... “Hey, I know you! We are part of “the sisterhood.” I love the immediate connection that the scarf generates in us.
I hope everyone else has a great time on this adventure as the scarf floats along through our lives.
