How a Visit to My Past Reinvigorated My Present

I’m having a nostalgic week over here and am amazed at how invigorating it’s been.

A college friend sent a group text last week to myself and some other alums to let us know she was speaking the next night for Founders Weekend at our alma mater. She wondered if anyone was up for joining her.

I immediately thought, “Hell yeah!”

Now, Melissa is one of the least spontaneous people I know, so I approach her accordingly.

“Up for a crazy adventure?” I ask.

“Maybe?” she responds tentatively.

I encourage her to check her text messages and stand by silently as she reads it.

I see a spark in her eye before the resistance can enter.
