I am so excited!!! Tomorrow at noon I will be seeing my dear friend, Meg, whom I haven’t laid eyes on since 1983.
We were inseparable our first year of college from 1980 through 81 and then she moved on to a different school upstate. We remained close, visiting each other often… but when, on her way back home from a visit to EIU, she was involved in a near fatal accident that left her with serious brain injury affecting her memory and her personality, it became more difficult to communicate with each other. She was in therapy and recovery for years to follow… and while we stayed in touch via Christmas card and occasional letter we eventually lost touch in 1989…
I just discovered that we’ve been living less than 15 miles from each other for the past 22 years.
And tomorrow we’ll be face to face once again.
I am absolutely giddy with excitement!
I love the Internet. 🙂
