Oh gosh. Is this an anniversary? 39 years. Eheu fugaces.
I guess where I come out on that one (not usefully) is that it's always an anniversary. My work and appts. are written in a diary I've had for years that was given to me by CBS/FOX Spain. Every year I buy the same Spanish refills because every day is marked as a saint's day. This makes me happy and reminds me that every day marks something and potentially celebrates something. I believe Lolly died during spring break, actually. She was, as you might recall, participating in one of those crazy non-stop drives to Florida made for no good purpose. It was terrible and, obviously, a terrible mistake. Her family lived very close to The Gunnery, in Woodbury, CT. Day students I knew there knew her. She has really almost disappeared from view. She was going through the usual college changes but she had a very good sense of humor and was basically a very kind person with a lot of poise. My parents met her and liked her, which is saying something. I really wish it hadn't happened. Curtis
I would like to mention that the uppermost photo is, I believe, a genuine spirit picture. I'm very, very lucky to have captured it. Curtis
You're right, it was spring break. I remember now. I couldn't take it in then, and I don't think I can now. I was a bit afraid of Lolly, but we were all so different then. To think of the life she never got to live. Your diary sounds like a terrific idea. I have forgotten so many of these crucial dates, and as one gets to realize right around now, keeping track of certain things over the long haul is very valuable. Going home now. More fried than usal for a Friday. Hope you have a nice weekend.
I will try to. I am also fried. It's cold here now. Hope SF was good. Both kids there now? Wow. I'd like to read this weekend, blow leaves, exercise, get over my cold, do a little work, and not worry. Curtis
