Strange coincidence

Back at NSU in Natchitoches, I was friends with a woman named Sandra. We both left town in the mid-90s, and as happens so often these days we recently friended each other on Facebook. I just realized something last night–there was a time when we were both living in Vermont, not 10 miles from each other, and neither of us knew it. When I was living and working in Barre, Sandra was going to Goddard College in Plainfield. We live in the village now, in an apartment overhanging the river.

I love finding these weird connections–mutual friends who worked together in a different state, the woman from Lafayette I met on a bus route who knew Ezzie, a friend’s S.O. who went to high school with an old musician buddy. Just makes the day a little brighter.
