Somehow, a Harley riding photographer from Virginia, became linked, via the joy that is WordPress blogging, with a talented, creative group of women from around the world. When Boomdee suggested we have an international Tea Party by Skype, we all jumped at the chance to particpate.
We each wore a hat and gloves, and were prepared with tea to drink and a poem to share. I was tempted to wear my helmet and leather, but couldn’t resist letting my inner Lady shine through with elbow length white gloves. You’re not surprised to learn that I had wine in my tea cup, are you?
Despite a few technical difficulties, and most of us not being able to see the others, we were able to hear each others voices, and enjoy poems, laughter, and stories. While I would have loved to see faces, I truly feel that I got to know these women a little better just by listening to their voices.
And before we knew it, a couple hours had passed, and we had all enjoyed a fabulous evening!!
Please, please, please check out the posts from the other Skype Tea participants. They have described the process far better than I – including how to coordinate a Skype session for 6 busy women from several different countries and time zones!
(I’ll add posts from our last two Skype Tea partiers soon).
I’m such a lucky woman and I can not wait for the next Tea Party!
