Anytime I need a lift to my spirits (not just in the last year through the pandemic) she's there...and she's the one who suggested we have a mini-dorm reunion on Zoom, since our real life reunion was cancelled. She and her husband are some of my favorite, most spirited Wahoos, and I can't wait until we can see them again in person.
Closer to home (lots closer - about 10 minutes away) is my friend Dorsey. We met taking religion classes together (she was a major, and I minored) and reconnected in Austin. Unbeknowst to me, she had moved here right after graduation as well, but our paths didn't cross for a couple of years. We ran into each other one night in a restaurant - and have been in touch ever since.
There are so many more people - here in Austin - and around the world that are only part of my life because our paths crossed in those short four years we found ourselves together as students at UVa.
Until next time.
