Re: His Daughter... Their Child
Good morning, everyone. Feel free to share your feelings about reunions or anything else that tickles your fancy. I have a snowy morning in PA and am ready for questions and discussion. KRS

Congratulations on your new book!! I'm sure it's going to be an enjoyable read. The setting sounds quaint and picturesque at the same time. I'm sure that I'll love the characters as well. I never considered myself popular in High School either. In fact, I didn't have time for rubbing elbows with the "cool kids." I was busy playing in the school orchestra, taking private lessons, and holding down a job. I really didn't have any extra time, after doing homework, for running around with friends. Besides, my Mother was pretty strict, and didn't approve of a lot of things that "normal" kids would do, so I was cheated out of a lot. I don't regret it, looking back, and enjoy it immensely when I can get to my reunions. We're still a close-knit group of classmates with no cliques now.

Peggy--I noticed the cliques had disappeared at our 25th. I wasn't popular, either. But I had a great group of friends that I'll never forget. I felt accepted with them, not like I had something to prove. We were competitive, but it was more trying to be the best we could be, not cutting down someone else. I realize now they got me through those difficult years. So I based friendships in His Daughter...Their Child on that! KRS

If you're blogging here with me today, don't forget to enter my February contest for a hand-crafted suncatcher from Sedona and a signed copy of my latest! KRS

I wasn't popular in HS either, and like Peggy, was very much involved in music, also in the orchestra (I'm a violist, still playing), but also in choir (still singing, but in a much lower range!). I was also a "Special Student" at the UW in my senior year, playing in two orchestras there and taking lessons, all of which left me next to no time outside of school things for a HS social life. Besides all that, most of my friends in HS were either a year or two ahead of me or a year or two behind me, so I have very little interest in attending any of my HS reunions, and have yet to do so, even with my 36th coming up this year.

Lynn--I know how you feel! But there was comfort and familiarity in seeing my classmates and reconnecting. Going to Catholic school, we finally compared notes on how we felt back then about the fabric of Catholic school life. Back then we didn't share like kids do now. Some of it was very healing. KRS

Lei--Thanks. I'm glad you stopped by. KRS

I like how you took a common experience and turned it into the backdrop for a book. This past summer was a big high school reunion and the number who attended is growing smaller each year. The layers of living matrixed onto what you know happened in school makes for much talk.
