I Like the Past Right Where It Is….

by Lisa Donovan

My ten year reunion invitations have started rolling in - my email has been inundated with notes from people I don’t even remember telling me how great it will be if I can pay $55 to come and hang out with the folks I used to hide from as a teenager.  There is a lot about the world that I have never understood, but a high school reunion is, by far, the most confounding.

I am proud to say that I don’t want to relive those days and a lot of those relationships.  Anyone whom I valued in school I still talk to on a weekly basis - we don’t need a reunion to keep in touch.  High school was not my “glory days” and I am pleased that it is over.  Don’t get me wrong, I had so much fun in those days - it had little to nothing to do with my high school though or the people I graduated with.  In fact, I pretty much hid in the art studio and dark room the entirety of my senior year….  I just don’t see the point. If I have to put on a name tag for people to remember who I was, chances are, we never really wanted to know one another in the first place…..
