“A time of innocence, a time of confidences” Paul Simon

Our east coast sojourn has been rich with visits with old friends.  Perhaps the oldest was Eric’s friend from elementary school, the first who lived beyond Eric’s street.  Stopping at his home on the way home from elementary school became a ritual, made sweet by the Entenmann’s pastries that his mother stocked.  Eulalie reconnected with her best friend from high school, who fondly recalls night time rendezvous after Eulalie climbed out of her bedroom window.  Long walks and highly personal talks typified time with these friends from our youths.  For Eric, there were marathon tennis games.  Eulalie honed her racing skills on Long Island with her friend.  These visits provided a window into these friends’ adult lives, familes, and accomplishments.  Poignantly, these visits also reaquainted us with our more youthful, unformed selves.

    Dear Eulalie and Eric: I have been perusing your archives and catching a glimpse of the wonderful distances you’ve traveled (in many more ways than just miles). I look forward to visiting with you both when you are back in the PNW and hearing some of the many things you have learned across your journey. Preparing for a short sail myself, I’ve been watching heavy weather sailing videos, and can only imagine. All the best. WS
