On a cold, sunny day last week, I met a friend from Montreal at The Willow in Hudson, Québec. It's just about a 45 minute drive for each of us, smack dab between my house and her house.
We first met in Grade 6 and stayed friends right through high school. I hadn't seen her for a while but reconnected at our high school reunion a few years back.
Now both on Facebook, we started talking again and decided it was time to get together. She had the Indian inspired salmon at lunch.
I had the seasonal burger special with brie and cranberries.
And we spent the rest of the afternoon talking. It was as though we had picked up our conversation where we had left off twenty-five years ago. Amazing.
