Reunion redux

Just came back from my 30th high school reunion. It was a lot of fun. I missed the bar get-together Friday night but the party Saturday night was great. I saw a bunch of people I hadn't seen in a long time, like 10, 20, and
30 years. One guy, Jim Debruin, had started a band and they played covers for us. They were amazing.

What struck me most was how happy everybody seemed to be. Many have gone through some of life's knocks and yet overall people seemed to be enjoying life and relatively content.

Two of my classmates organized the reunion: Dana and Red, and they did an awesome job. We used this organization that, well, organizes reunions, so they got in contact with us all and handled the logistics. Red has also been getting us together every Summer informally and I hope one day to make one of those in Dallas. I realized after the reunion that it's sad I don't see more of these people more frequently--a consequence of living in St Louis (and graduationg high school I guess).
