Continuing my summer of reflection and reconnection. A dear college friend, Kimberly Meyerson, came calling to the Pacific Northwest with a friend and colleague. Last time we spent some time together was 20 years ago, when I was still in northern California. Her free day was her arrival day, July 5th, so we made the most of the time. Margo and I took her on the “nature tour”, showing her the jewel of the area – the Columbia River Gorge. Add lunch and dinner conversations, a visit to Nakagawa West to see the kids. By the time I dropped her off in Salem, the years apart went away.
I think the next time I’m on the east coast on business, I’ll need to take up her invitation to visit her home turf and hospitality. She is a special lady whose friendship I don’t take for granted.
