This is my first blog attempt so be kind. I wanted to share to a small degree the emotional roller coaster that these first 5 days have been. As you know, after hours I have reconnecting with friends that I haven't seen in 25 or 30 years, and that has been extremely rich, but also tinged with sadness as I see in their faces the 16 year olds they were, and now in their mid-50s we are looking at the down-sloping part of the metaphoric life-hill. But it is so wonderful to see them. Layer this on top of the readings, lectures, museum exhibits, survivor testimony, and I wonder how many more emotions I can feel. I want to say that the humor interspersed with all the rest is what keeps me sane (a relative state), and I thank you all for that and for the caring that everyone is showing one another. Deep breath and on to another day, another adventure, another discovery.
