We had our 40threunion last Saturday night. A bunch of us met beforehand at a friend’s house. It is an interesting phenomenon to me how folks you had very little contact with in high school, due to divides erected and conjured through silent but tangible social structuring, become wonderful conversationalists at later reunions. I kept being struck by how much we limit ourselves by limiting ourselves.
Wonderful windows into the make up of others – some choosing San Francisco and Seattle to live in; National Geographic documentary videographer, art museum curator, entrepreneurial documentary film president, wonderful theatrical performer turned nurse, the military, avid ski and athletics enthusiast, personal trainer, riding bikes across Africa, one’s partner a contemporary orchestral composer.
Last Saturday night I fell in love with all we’ve become.
