40 years? Seemed like 40 minutes.

That's my friend, Nancy, wearing her old school uniform, on the right. Yes, it still fits. Yes, we wanted to kill her.
It was a small reunion by anyone's standards, but the 40th reunion of the Loretto Class of '73 satisfied on all levels. There were opportunities to talk one-on-one with everyone for extended periods of time, allowing us to really catch up on each others' lives. In fact, I was listening and talking so much, I took precious few photos, except at the Modern Masterpieces of Mexico exhibition we took in yesterday afternoon at the Nelson-Atkins Musuem...
Self-portrait by Frida Kahlo
and lunch at the Sebastienne Cafe at the Kemper Museum of Modern Art...
Note to self: Must take more cultural outings. They're a jump charge for brain and soul.
After a lively dinner out last night, I am returning home today with a full heart and loads of gratitude for my small all-girls' high school that afforded me such wonderful women as lifelong friends.
