Tempus fugit

Posted in Friends & families by helenofmarlowe on January 28, 2011

This morning, I opened an email from a friend who said,

Do you remember where you had lunch twenty-five years ago today?

I thought — huh?¬† What kind of question is that?


Then later today, as I heard (not for the first time this week) that twenty-five years

ago today was the day the space shuttle Challenger  exploded, I understood.

And I responded to her email — yes, yes, we were in a cafe near Wake Forest University,

there was a tv over the bar …

Twenty-five years.

Twenty five.
