Not quite sure what the adage of something, something new/old friends, one is silver, the other is gold (and I'm FAR too invested in vacation sloth to actually Google it), but as I age~while I so enjoy meeting new people and the layer of interest they bring to my life~there is something so comforting about kicking off one's shoes and curling up on a sofa and just Talking without filters.
Two of my former Austin colleagues~both of whom call Baltimore their home~so lovely to catch up with them for an afternoon.
deep joy of being
known from survival in some
fun teaching trenches
And, I have to laugh at my two Jewish friends~posing in front of a Christmas tree.
