The Lilac Moment

Today the sun shone, the temperature rose, and the fragrance…oh, the fragrance! The fragrance filled the backyard.

Seven years ago, in a spirit of hopefulness, I decided to try meeting someone through online personal ads. The lilacs filled the air, and I took a screen name that expressed my love for lilacs.

The lilacs had gone by when I met Pure Luck in early July, but I will always smile when I remember that spring and the surge of desire to begin seeking a new life that coincided with their blooming.

  1. I sometimes use stories-about-names as an icebreaker exercise in classes or groups. This is a great one! Enjoy those spring memories.
