We have only this moment,
sparkling like a star in our hand ...
and melting like a snowflake.
Let us use it before it's too late.
~Marie Beynon Ray
It had been 17 or 18 years since it had just been the three of us. There was a time in high school we were, as a trio, inseparable. The memories we share are as clear and vivid as if they they'd happened a week ago. We had been trying to get together for a while but something always came up ... jobs, kids, illnesses, you name it.
Well, it finally happened in September! Lynn and Donell drove to Los Angeles (the mid-point) to spend the day and have an "old school" sleep-over! Lynn had the great idea for us to go downtown to Olvera Street (The oldest part of Los Angeles, where it was founded) and have lunch. We ended up playing with puppets, trying on hats, making wishes at the wishing well and adorning ourselves with crepe paper flowers.
We took the metro down there and here are the photos to prove we finally did it! It was just like old times. At one point, at lunch, the three of us were giggling and laughing and Donell stopped. I thought she'd burst into tears and she said "It's just the same."
and had my favorite beer!
What a bargain! A buck-fifty to take you on a little adventure!
The most beautiful discovery true friends make
is that they can grow separately without growing apart.

Hope you are having a beautiful weekend.
And don't let time pass without calling your friends-
They are the richness of life!
Blessings and light to all of you!
