It’s still early to look back on the year, but there was an emotional event for me this year.
It is still too early to look back on the year, but there was an emotional event for me this year.
It was a reunion with classmates.
I am sure that many of you are still in touch with your old classmates, but I was different.
Back then, I had a lot of fun at school and spent time with my classmates after school and on holidays.
However, after graduation, I met new people and made new friends everywhere I went, and I became estranged from my former classmates.
This year, however, thanks to SNS, I was able to connect with two of my high school classmates for the first time in about 30 years, and we met again.
I was thrilled to go to the meeting place…we recognized each other immediately. And I cried. I’m so happy that you welcomed me so sweetly, even though I’m so thin on friendships!
Then my friend said, “What? Crying?” And my friend laughed.
I thought, “Hey, cry with me here! Time passed in a flash as we talked about episodes that had been missing from my memory, and both of us have become wonderful adults. I have experienced many things in my own way and have lived up to this point in my life. I am grateful for the precious existence that still keeps me close.
I know it’s a long story, but the song this time is the 1985 hit “That’s What Friends Are For,” produced by Burt Bacharach and Carol Beyer Sager and performed by four of the biggest names in music, Dionne Warwick, Stevie Wonder, Gladys Knight, and Elton John. That’s What Friends Are For”. As I listen to the song, I sincerely feel grateful to have friends.
In fact, the original vocal was Rod Stewart’s version on the soundtrack of the 1982 movie “Night Shift. I didn’t know that!
