Rocking to Jack Johnson
Thanks to a college friend who now lives in Oregon, I’m listening to Jack Johnson’s CD Brushfire Fairytales. Way cool. I saw Jack live at 2003 Milwaukee Summerfest in July, so I’m reliving his awesome performance. In her card to me, my friend wrote:
Ursula, I’m so glad you’ve made the effort to keep in touch since we left U of Michigan. You’re a great friend, and I still don’t think I would have graduated without you!
How sweet. I totally feel the same way about her. Senior year was wicked stressful for both of us and we provided much needed support to help each other finish our senior honors thesis on time. I look back now and smile because while that year was hectic, there were so many wonderful moments. It’s one of the reasons why when most people were scared to fly shortly after 9/11/2001, I got on a plane about 3 weeks later for her wedding in Newport Beach, Rhode Island. I totally valued her friendship and wanted to be there for her on her special day!
