High School Friends at the Thing

The following reflection was written in 2003, when I was between 25 and 26 years old.


If I recall correctly, and let’s face it — sometimes I don’t, I think I met up with a few of my high-school friends at the annual pre-4th of July thingy on Chelmsford Common the night of July 3. We were all only one year removed from high school and a bunch of people were still in or had just graduated from high school. So, there were still a lot of people around and I believe I saw a lot of them that first July 4th when I was back from college.

Who I saw and what we might have done are totally beyond me. I went to the art show every year. I probably saw some folks there. I recall meeting up with a bunch of the mutual friends my brother and I shared. I recall vaguely that I might have bumped into Meg as I planned to hang out with her later on in the month according to my journal.

Uhm, that’s about all.
