The highlight for me was when the woman raided the dessert table even before people were settling in for their first course. I laughed and commented that she may have her dinner courses mixed up, only to see her grin and retort, "No, it's everyone else that's mixed up".
Throughout the long evening I watched with great curiosity as this tiny woman continued to smile and walk her own path. Towards the end of the event she left the function and ventured out into the nighttime on a solo exploration of the botanical garden's orchard exhibit, a wonderful display of moving through life on her own terms. She made my night.
