I smiled a lot today.
Some of you will know that recently (via FaceBook) a very good friend from high school & I were amazingly reunited. We have kept in touch since, talked a great deal - email & telephone contact ....
Today (a very hot & sticky day in the city of Melbourne) we met again. And spent a wonderful afternoon wandering around the art gallery (how exciting to find another person who actually finds real pleasure in this! As opposed to the good souls kindly obliging
) We had lunch (Indian) at Southgate. Outside, by the river.
All through this we talked & talked & talked & talked ... catching up on many years ... about LIFE (of course! ) & death, what we had experienced, husbands & lovers, achievements & failures, children (in her case), our mothers & our fathers ... on & on ... The things that mattered.
All in all, it was pretty good!
