Out of the Blue

4 May

What can turn an ordinary day into extraordinary? Getting a phone call across the Atlantic from a college friend you haven’t seen or talked to in 38 years. My old friend Lucy called me out of the blue this afternoon, and after just a few minutes the years fell away.  I am so excited to visit her in Munich this summer. We have all of our lives to catch up on.

    Wonderful! to have a call from an old friend you haven’t met for so long. What memories and stories you will have to tell!

    Nothing like having friends like that. I had not seen my Canadian friends since 1976 and in January this year we had a wonderful reunion.

    Best wishes for your reunion and thanks for visiting, liking my Colourful Cairns post.

    By the way, you and I are the same age, both musicians, both women … what’s not to like?! Following you now …

    A friend with whom you can pick things up where you left off is indeed a true friend. I count myself blessed to have some of these and I’m glad you do, too.

      We are both indeed lucky. Thank you, Janet. Rosemarie

      Yes, it is. On this trip I will be catching up with 4 people I have not seen in 38 years. That is spectacular.
