clean up... mercury retrograde has me decluttering ... both physically and emotionally ... discarding and organizing and lord and behold I found some precious lost mementos in a corner.. Nova High School Class of 91... I was 17... seems like a century ago... reading some of the messages on the pictures we all distributed to each other at the end of the year made me smile... when did things change so much? Do kids nowadays speak to each other still this way? Gently and kindly? My prom date... Class president ... he was an absolute gentleman and I often pray he is flourishing .
I am sharing my favs :
"To Anita, I am very glad to have been acquainted with you. I know you are a very sweet and intelligent person. I respect the fact that you are unafraid to speak your mind. I noticed you are a little shy though but respectable. Good luck in the future and with B-BALL .. Love Russel" ...
"Anita, Hello sweety.. you were quite shy and strange, but I changed it all 😁May you continue to follow in my footsteps.. Remember ME LOVE YA.. Keisha Rayner"
How could I ever forget you Keisha lol... I actually forgot I seemed shy... but I was just reserved... because I found this American culture strange ...

And out of the blue,
we felt #history pass us by, in silent #flashbacks through the alleyways of #Jew Street, transporting us back to the 11th century... to the days of yore when the Malabari Jews first came down as merchants transporting ivory, monkeys and parrots to #King#Solomon’s temple in #Israel...past #memorylanes to the 14th century... when the European Jews arrived here from Portugal and Spain.
