w e d n e s d a y... and old friends



We took a short trip to Manila last week.  It was what my soul needed.  Not the notorious Manila traffic, mind you --never that!  Don't even get me started on how bad it gets.  What made this trip special was that I got to reconnect with friends from high school, many of whom I hadn't seen in 30 years!  Everyone looked pretty much the same, albeit with a few lines here and there.  Laugh lines, I'd like to think, because the laughter came just as easily as it did back then.  Maybe even more abundantly now as we mocked how silly we were back in the days.  The humor dry, wry, and a bit sly at times, but always in good fun.  

As we reminisced, we also caught up with what each is doing now, swapped stories of our children and spouses, gossiped about those who were not present (not going to lie!).  I am smiling as I am writing this... and dreaming of halo-halo and maíz con hielo and palabok.

That is good to know that it is safe to travel there! I thought the Phillipeans was unsafe right now! Though it isn't on my radar right now. I am trying to find someone to watch my kids, so that I can go on a work trip with my husband to Singapore.

How wonderful to catch up with friends after so long, and just to be able to take up that friendship again. Sounds like you had a wonderful time. Enjoy the rest of your week.
