Making Our Own Music

While waiting for the clouds to clear this morning so that I could get outside and enjoy the day, I perused over to YouTube and did a search for my old high school, just to see if people from my old stomping grounds ever uploaded anything familiar.

I was thrilled when I saw this link.  The Drumline preview for my old alma mater.  Sure, the kids are people I wouldn’t know, and I haven’t stepped foot in that school since I graduated many MANY moons ago, but it brought back happy memories of when I myself, was a band geek.

In fact, it was in band, that I met two of my best friends in the whole world.  Heather and I played the clarinet and Julie played the drums.  It never occurred to me that because we loved music, our lives would be permanently fused somehow.

Howard and I are finally making our annual voyage back to our adjoining hometowns this summer and I’m really hoping and praying that I will get the chance to see my two beautiful and fabulous fellow band geeks.

After all, it was because of band class that I know that Heather hates bridges that go over water and that Julie hates feet.  That Heather loves to dance as much as I do and that Julie sings at the top of her lungs to the radio just like I do as well.  Two girls that know everything there is to know about me…two girls that I’m long overdue in sitting down and having a good long visit with.  Two girls with which I pray to God I can orchestrate good timing so that we’re all in the same room at the same time.  Because I honestly cannot remember the last time that actually happened.

And to think it all began with some woodwinds and snares.

    It’s been waaaaaay too long since we’ve seen each other. Let me know when you are going home and I’ll try to get back myself. I’ve not been there in over 3 years. And I STILL can’t stand bridges that are over water and am not much better with the ones that aren’t over water. lol Love ya and Miss ya!!! Heather
