Jason and I saw Mr Williams in the grocery store today. Actually, Mr Williams saw us first and asked if Jason went to Tanglewood because he recognized him, which is amazing! For anyone who reads this and doesn’t know who Mr Williams is; he is the campus monitor for Tanglewood ELEMENTARY. So, he hasn’t seen Jason since 5th grade (8 years ago) and he recognized him. Wow!
After that chance encounter, Jason had a flood of memories come back. Isn’t funny how you can not be thinking about the past and you see someone from your past and all of a sudden you time warp into elementary school? Especially, since I occasionally drive past the school and it doesn’t look anything like it did when Michelle and Jason were there. I would like to go back to those days again for a little while (sigh).
Heck, even Paschal’s exterior has changed since Michelle and Jason were there and it has only been a year and a bit since Jason graduated there. Nothing stays the same. I think the reason you can never go back home again is because what was there for you isn’t ever there anymore or does everyone already know that. (sigh, again)
