Comments:

I moved to Massachusetts with my late husband in 1980 looking for a short term adventure. Here I am still! My husband (Bela Csikesz, class of 1971, Woodside Priory) died of a brain tumor in 2011. I worked in schools as a school psychologist or school counselor for 34 years. I retired in 2014. Now I do what I used to like to do more often. I ride a road bike, hike, read, travel, and take advantage of the cultural opportunities in Boston (Boston Ballet, Handel & Haydn, MFA, etc.).

I also have four grandchildren, all of whom are living in Massachusetts so I guess I am here for the duration, but I sure miss California.

School Story:

My family moved to Palo Alto from Santa Barbara at the beginning of my second semester of my junior year. It was not an easy time to move, but I met some really wonderful people and appreciate the experiences I had for the short time I was at Paly.

John Abrams was really friendly and supportive. My French background was not commensurate with what was needed in the French class at Paly and John tried to help me out. I persevered though and still love the language.

I remember AP English with Mr. Vittetoe the most. He seemed both world weary (or at least weary of teaching teenagers) but to be interested in getting us to think.

Do you want to NEVER hear from a Paly Reunion again?

No

Regarding people with red hair and experience of pain, well I am just so surprised. My brother, my sister and her two boys all have red hair so this is relevant information. One never knows what one will learn from the Amphitheater - chat site.

What a woman of action! Wow! You know how to get things done. MaxSold sounds perfect. I have made huge strides decluttering between donating/selling/Buy Nothing Westford on FB but it's slow and more time-consuming than one might think. MaxSold sounds more like ripping off the bandage than ever so slowly peeling it off.

Your poor husband. I am glad to hear he is feeling better and will be at your side soon.

I can relate to your feelings about not liking being looked at by men. I have found that to be a gift of aging. I no longer have to experience staring that makes me uncomfortable.

I share those happy memories of drinking out of a stream by lying down and putting your face in it. We were very fortunate.

My compliments to Peggy for working on the Pasadena Festival of Women Authors. It must be especially thrilling for Peggy to witness Amanda reading her poem.

Ten to eighteen inches is forecast for most of Massachusetts. I really hope it's ten. That's more than enough for cross country skiing.

My son is scheduled to get the Pfizer vaccine tomorrow. As an intensivist at a regional hospital south of Boston who works with CV patients, apparently he shot right up the priority line. Hopefully this storm won't interfere with its distribution although I can't imagine that there won't be some sort of delay. As you know, 10 to 18" of snow is nothing to be trifled with.
