Twenty Five Years....that's a long time to have not seen someone and reunite. I had the honor of meeting up with a friend from Junior High whom I had not seen in twenty five years. A lot of life happens in twenty five years - good and bad, joyous and sad, thrilling and tragic. One would think a person would change a lot in twenty five years. And indeed both of us had changed. But the connection...the basic personality...the mannerisms...They do not change!! My friend and I spent four entire days together. Throughout that time I kept having moments of de ja vous...it was as if time had suspended and we were standing on the sidewalks of our Junior High School. The laughter that flowed, the ease of conversation, her movements, the voice....I was right back in the moments we shared as 7th and 8th grade girls. It was as if time had suspended and only moments had gone by. The amazing thing to me about this reconnection was that my friend and I had not kept in touch over those twenty five years. We just recently reconnected over email and telephone calls. Yet....there was an ease, a comfort, a familiarity that could only exist between Kindred Spirits. Kindred Spirits....that we were...that we are.
