Tuesday and Wednesday nights I spent with my friends and classmates from the high school class of 19xx.(smirk) Our xxth reunion - and it was wonderful.
For the last 15 or 20 years, we've had a reunion every five years - and every time the mix is different for a variety of reasons.
This year, finally, one of my friends from 3rd grade who had never been to a reunion, decided to come.
That was a treat. Some people never change: you'd know them anywhere. Others, you can't seem to place at first. There were a ton of people I went through school with, starting in 3rd grade and those are the relationships where you instantly feel that no time has gone by and you pick up where you left off.
At dinner, I pulled out my photo of our 6th grade girl scout troop - hilarious! Four of us were there last night and OMG - we look drop-dead gorgeous today compared to this photo. Snort! It's so embarrassing. Anyway, I was thrown out of the Girl Scouts because I would not comply with the RULES. Quelle surprise!
I was so busy talking and hugging people for two nights that I took only one photo: a selfie of me with my dear friend Bill. He is an amazing photographer, musician, and a man of many talents. We've been close since 7th grade and while he used to get down to NJ periodically and stay with Marty and me, it is a trip made less and less often and he claims this may be his last. I refuse to accept that.
Anyway, back to real life today. I have been making more pieces of Art for Small Spaces and tomorrow I have to stop at the gallery to make sure everything looks good for tomorrow night's opening. I will hand my camera over to someone else to take pictures because I know I will be otherwise occupied.
