The Reunion

I got back this past weekend from my 20th business school reunion in California.  I miss California so much… but that’s a whole other blog.

Anyway, I had a number of people approach me and tell me that they used to read, and really appreciate this blog.  It’s been a year since I wrote and 2 years since I really wrote often, so that was surprising.  I also noticed that this reunion was more “real” than, say, our 5th or 10th.  Back then many of us were posturing about how great we were doing professionally or flexing (my daughter Lily’s favorite word this week) how little we had aged.  This time though, it felt different, and I think it’s in part because most of us have had life punch us in the face over the past 5 or 10 years.  In particular, many people lost parents, or had parents who were sick, or parents who were in the homes that they’d lived in for 40 years and “I know I should move them out, but I don’t know how to go about it…”  It sounded very familiar and I knew I could help by sharing some of my experiences.

Part of this reunion was about ways of giving back and doing things you really like to do.  This blog is definitely the latter and it seems like it might be a little bit the former as well.  So, I’m going to pick this back up again.  Rather than guess what direction it will go, I’ll just write and see what happens and for how long.

    Hooray! Always love reading. Glad you’re writing again Peter. Looking forward to it.

    Did your friends from Oz come? Ben and Beth?? Not sure if their names. Did the girls also go or just you and Nova?

      Everyone was there – actually our friends from Australia came in part b/c we were hosting a dinner, which was above and beyond (it’s a long trip!) But the girls stayed home… adults only!
