Kick start your day with a good breakfast

Reunion Breakfast

on July 13, 2014

Forty years ago, on the first day of college, I met Paula. We were about 18, two sheltered Catholic girls who were looking forward to lives filled with excitement. Well, we got that, with a lot more to come.

Paula lives in Denver now. I hadn’t seen her for a few years. On a trip East this week, we fell right back into the old rhythms. Today, we wandered over to Roosevelt Island on a foggy, drizzly morning, a perfect backdrop to visiting the ruins of the Smallpox Hospital.


We couldn’t eat our picnic breakfast on the actual Four Freedoms Park grounds, but there were tables set out by the East River, so we sat and reminisced and caught up and saw what’s new on the Long Island City side.



It was like those groggy college mornings, after long nights of studying and laughing and arguing and sharing, where we fueled ourselves for another day of pushing forward into a future filled with promise.
