old friends

July 18, 2013

last weekend, we had a gathering of some of the scholars I studied with in Melbourne.  some of us now live overseas or in various regions of the Philippines so it’s rare that we’re in Manila at the same time.  It’s been almost 12 years since we saw them – I’m in online contact with some but that’s different.  Most of us have kids now and have done well – it’s not only about having the intellectual capacity but the right attitude along with it.  We may be different and have common stories but it’s the shared experience that binds us together.
