So, yesterday I had lunch with a friend I hadn't seen in over 25 years.
She was one of the first to befriend me when I moved to a new town as a kid, she taught me to ride a horse (she had two, I eventually got one), and we played Barbies together--making complicated sprawling compounds for them to live in, complete with barns and stables (filled with model horses), and, with both of us being such avid readers, we also crafted some equally complicated backstories, usually involving torrid relationship histories between Barbie, Ken, and that third wheel PJ.
And then came middle school when the Barbies were replaced with trips to Skateway, then high school and all of its ensuing complications, and then, somehow, we lost touch . . .

And now, many, many years later, we met up again, only this time she had her delightful 12 year old daughter in tow--and, well, it was great! Truly great! It's a really wonderful thing when you can connect with your past in such a fun way, to learn and share about the journeys life took, all the unexpected twists and turns, the losses and triumphs, and the way that it informed and shaped us along the way.
And speaking of journeys, I'm talking about some of my favorite ones over on Little Willow's blog today--and answering the question, which would I choose: Time Travel or Immortality??
You can read it HERE.
And now I'm asking YOU. If you had the choice, would you rather be able to time travel or live forever??
Also, just learned that BLUE MOON landed at #24 this week on the USA Today list, while EVERMORE came in at # 58-- So thank you thank you thank you for that!!
Enjoy your weekend, Everyone!
