I love how the world seems to crisscross along my journey. Today after class I spent the afternoon with Eli, a friend/former Lee student I haven't seen in over 7 years. He was passing through London on one of his many European adventures and took the train to Cambridge to visit for the afternoon. His American friends happened to be in town for one day and joined us. One had previously been stationed in Mississippi and one is about to be reassigned to Mississippi. Then, two friends of one of the Americans happened to walk by him on the street and-- wait for it!-- those two individuals were from Mississippi. It was like a great big Mississippi reunion along King's Parade in front of King's College as we talked about common places and people. There was a momentary display of southern emotion. This whole day has been spontaneous, but it has been most enjoyable. My world is so small and interconnected.
