174/365-2 Under the Sun


 I got my undergraduate degree in North Catolina but moved to Texas as soon as I had graduated.  When we travel to and from Delaware, we have a connection through Chatlotte, North Catolina.   On today's trip we decided to take a twenty-four hour layover in Charlotte so that I could reunite with my college roommate and my other very best friend from college.  None of us has seen one another in 25 years.

In those years since we were last together there have been marriages, divorce, eight children, graduate degrees, family moves, and many jobs.  In the midst of all of that, we lost regular contact with one another.  Enter Facebook.  We reunited with each other via Facebook and committed to getting together in person.  The stars aligned for that to happen today.

Despite all the time that has passed, we picked up right where we left off, as if yesterday we were those college students standing in the practice room halls at ECU.  It was kind of a surreal experience, a time warp of sorts, in a truly awesome way.

It will not be 25 years between visits again.  I love you guys!
