Just came from seeing a band in Central Park and then having dinner with friends. It was rather impromptu. Two women who were in my life coaching training class over three years ago came from their homes in Brewster, N.Y., and Hartford, Conn. to see the band. They brought another friend.

What a lively scene it was. The proverbial melting pot that is New York dancing and singing in the park. The band — Tortured Soul — has a sort of cult following. They’re very good. The bass player is my friend’s son; she has much reason to be proud.

Dinner afterwards was lively and funny. I bonded with these women almost immediately after meeting them and we have done a good job of staying in touch. It’s special, really. One of those winning combos life hands you.

I love that.
