Comments

I went to NYC a year after graduation (after living in DC for a year where I worked for the Movement of Economic Justice and had a homemade soup and sandwich service at Catholic Law School to raise money to go to NYC to study Eurythmics. I arrived in NYC with $300 in the bank and lived there for 16 years, accompanying dance classes and teaching at NYU Tisch in the Dance Dept as a musician. I got married and had a daughter and moved to Delray Beach for about 5 years, then to Columbus Ohio to OSU to get my one of a kind master's degree at the age of 45 and ended up teaching and playing as Musid Coordinator of the OSU Dance Dept for about 7 years. Then, I got divorced in 2005 and moved to Durham, NC with my daughter and went to massage school with her at the age of 55. Every summer since 1981 (until 2013) I was Music Coordinator of the American Dance Festival in Durham. So lucky to have found this corner of the world. Still teaching piano and accompanying dance.

School Story

I remember graduation weekend we at Keep Coop made up a scavenger hunt that said things like How many trees are in Tappen Square? I was going through an old box and discovered a draft of the tasks. Does anyone else remember if we really did this or not? Too many other memories to list here, including my Junior Year when I went in the back of a UHAUL to hike the Smokie Mountains during Fall Break. Never imagined then I would be living in NC! I remember meeting a couple on the trail who were hiking the entire trail. When I found out they were 40 years old, I could not believe it. Now 40 years old seems like a reasonable age to hike the trail! It's all perspective.

Are you planning to attend our 50th reunion in person?

Yes, if it's safe to do so

Can't wait to actually see you! Thanks to Bea, I have heard your name over the past years, (and the dear Book of Face, of course. I spent 5 weeks in Chaing Mai in 2012 learning Thai Yoga Massage and absolutely loved it. Amazing country.
