Wednesday, March 09, 2005 Mid-life celebration?
Most of my adolescent years were spent in Paris, France, where I attended an Italian high-school. I will not mention my academic achievements which were certainly not impressive (I was a lousy, lousy student) but I can assure you I had a highly active social life and plenty of friends. Through all these years I have kept in touch with a few of them, some consistently, some on a less regular basis. Others I have no clue as to their whereabouts, although I remember them fondly. Of course there is also a small number about whom I couldn't give a damn and an even smaller number whose existence I don't even recall. But here I am now, getting old and growing nostalgic. I envision meeting them all again, finding out about their lives and criticizing their mates mercilessly. I am thinking of organizing a big party in Paris for all of us to gather and reminisce.
I made un my mind a couple of days ago and wrote a guy from school who has recently discovered my blog (yes, you, Zeno) and confessed to having been toying with the same idea. The ball is now rolling. I have sent and received quite a few e-mails in just a couple of days and the response so far has been encouraging.
I know that for me it is, among a number of different other things, also a way of reclaiming at least in part the person I was before I met JP. While I am obviously not the same exact person now, nor would I want to be, there are aspects of my personality that have not changed that much. Like here I am, forever organizing social events ...
