Dear Friends,

Victoria showed up to music club 15 minutes early. This was only her 3rd time attending and she was still getting to know everyone. She arrived at the same time as a couple that were probably in their early 70’s. The couple said hello, Victoria said hello back but could not remember their names at that moment.

She stood to the side of the room in order to orient herself and connect with the energy vibrations around her. As she stood there, the couple she had walked in with were on the other side of the room discussing between theenselves where they were going to sit. She watched them and listened, suddenly she remembered their names..Charlie and Mona. Here is what they were saying:

Charlie: Do you think we should sit over here or over there?

Mona: Over here I think will be good.

Charlie: How about I sit in this chair and you can sit on my right.

Mona: I think this chair will be better. Will that chair work for you?

Charlie: yes, I think that will be just fine.

They sit down in the chairs. There is a lot of hustle and bustle as they set down their bags. Charlie is rustling around through some papers. He looks up and says….

Charlie: How about we move over there so I can set these papers on the end table?

Mona: The last time we sat over there is was too far away from the piano.

Charlie: Well then how about we move to those chairs by the piano? I can set the papers on the piano.

There is a lot of rustling around, gathering up papers and bags. They move down to the chairs next to piano. Mona places a bag on the floor on the right side of her chair and is searching around for a place to set her other bag. Charlie sets his papers on top of the piano and starts looking around.

Charlie: where is the tambourine?

Mona: It’s in this bag.

Mona picks up the bag to the right of her chair and hands it to Charlie. Charlie takes the tambourine out and it looking for a place to set it down. Mona is setting her other bag on the ground to her right. She looks up and sees Charlie looking for a place to put the tambourine.

Mona: Put it back in the bag.

Charlie tries putting the tambourine back in the bag but it is a tight fit and he is having trouble getting it back in. Mona is watching him. He manages to get the tambourine back in the bag and leans down to set the bag on the floor to his left.

Mona: I can’t reach it over there. How about setting it between us.

Charlie picks up the bag and turns to set it on the floor between them. Mona is removing another bag that she had set between them and Charlie doesn’t notice what Mona is doing and sets the tambourine bag on top of the bag Mona is pulling on to move out of the way.

Mona: I’m moving this bag out of the way dear.

Charlie: oh!

He picks up the tambourine bag and leaves room for Mona to pull out the other bag and set it next to the bag on her right. Charlie then puts the tambourine bag between them.

Mona: thank you dear.

It seems as if they both are finally satisfied with how they are seated and settled in.

Victoria smiles with joy while watching their seating process. It was a real life sitcom and it was beautiful. She was filled with love and gratitude toward them for enriching her life. Then she takes a seat for herself.
