This morning I was thinking about life, our journeys, the paths we have taken and those yet to be chosen. In 1973 I thought I'd never see any of my friends from Bangkok again, ever. I remember my absolute joy when in 1998 I stumbled across the ISB Network Alumni Association just months before the Long Beach reunion! I immediately called my twin sister Marian, signed us up and haven't missed a reunion since. For me, every reunion is a Sentimental Journey...
Gonna take a Sentimental Journey,
Gonna set my heart at ease.
Gonna make a Sentimental Journey,
to renew old memories.
Got my bags, got my reservations,
Spent each dime I could afford.
Like a child in wild anticipation,
I Long to hear that, "All aboard!"
Seven...that's the time we leave at seven.
I'll be waitin' up at heaven,
Countin' every mile of railroad
track, that takes me back.
Never thought my heart could be so yearny.
Why did I decide to roam?
Gotta take that Sentimental Journey,
Sentimental Journey home.
