I had a wonderful time this past Saturday getting reacquainted with old high school friends at my 30 year reunion. Gosh how time has passed! You wonder where thirty years have gone, and while young the prospect of thirty years in the future was almost unfathomable. But surprise, here I am. I’m so glad we’ve made it, and no sirree, I wouldn’t change a thing-except maybe I’d eat less (if I could go back in time and offload to myself a wealth of practical wisdom it would be, “Keep your mouth closed”.) But, I’m working on that, and what I can honestly say is here, in the now, at the sweet age of 48 I am happy. I am healthy and surging with ideas and possibilities for my future. With the exception of the effects of gravity, all is well. And for that, a song to commemorate the physical changes we’ve all endured to get where we are now.
I can hardly wait for the next reunion in five years, but honestly, it seems like forever between now and then. Funny, it seems unfathomable, just like it felt back in high school. I’ll see you then…Oh, and if I can quote the song, “Gravity….stay the hell away from me.” 😉
