But the differences were quite obvious. Her questions, more like an interrogation - well she had worked in the legal profession, chap my hid. I became quiet in voice, body language and then I breathed. Not a response. A thought was needed, but which? She said, "Junie, when I bring up my religious viewpoints, you become defensive." I thought, "Yes, I do. I don't want you to push your stuff on me." I pondered, studied her. She's feisty, a Leo, fiery and outspoken. Not unlike myself. A good woman.A good friend. She braved her own community and friends to support my book...a scary thing since it is not of her religious beliefs and dogmas.
I said, "Yes, you are right, I do feel defensive." We talked, like wise crones we are. We opened our minds to understand each other. We braved our differences and we are friends. It is as it can be if one opens to fear and with courage is willing to embrace and move beyond them. Blessed be. Please read more about my novel, The Skye in June, at www.juneahern.com
