Another Big Event

I learned yesterday that my High School Reunion is 109 days away. The organizers have set up a website and made plans for several activities - one of them is referred to as "The Big Event." I have mixed feelings about this reunion. I have changed a great deal (both internally and externally) in the last 30 years as would be expected. But I've changed and grown tons just in the last 6 years. I wonder how hard it will be to explain all the changes I/we have gone through since I left teaching. Will I even want to? Who there will care? There are a few people that I was close to in high school that I would want to reconnect with. I have a friend who read my blog soon after I first started it. She said, "It's like reading about someone I don't know."

On a lighter note, for the most part High School was fun and I do look forward to seeing many people I haven't seen in a long time. So, regardless of how deep the sharing goes, I can go and have fun if I don't let myself get too bogged down in seriousness.

20 years for me and I wouldn't even know where to start!

Wow... I can't imagine going back for mine.

Yea...I think the go and see is interesting, but I don't think you can even explain this stuff in a casual conversation

Sharing the 78 is great motto with you... and you are braver than me. I just haven't figured out how to get to that BE... Even if I supply preached for the next ten weeks, I'm not sure I'd go there. I admire you!

I have a 30th this year, too. I've been thinking of going, but have similarly mixed feelings.

I went to my 20th because I have a friend who agreed that she would if I would. We actually had a pretty good time, but it just made me so glad (as always) that I don't live there now. Well, I've done that, I don't need to go to another. Since (unlike me) you liked HS, you will probably enjoy it, but expect to be amazed at how you've changed and some of them haven't.

I did 10. I did 20.

I'm done.
