I met this young man's mother more than a dozen years ago when we both belonged to a political forum on CompuServe. That was way back in the olden days of internet forums and services. People who know me probably wonder what in the world I was doing on a political forum but there I was--hanging out with an amazing group of women (and one token man) in a women's issues forum where we talked about a lot of things--politics included. Over the years we met up in person a few times but it has been many years since we'd seen each other. It was quite a treat, then, on Friday to meet up with Mary again and two of her three children. I'd met them many years before, as well, but they were both too young to remember the weekend spent in Ashland, OR watching Shakespearean plays. Now they are both taller than me and one is a senior in high school. Where did the time go? (And why am I starting to sound like my grandmother as I wax nostalgic about things that happened a decade more more ago?) Enjoy!
