A couple days past the weekend of September 11th – 13th 2015….
Lavender is the scent of good things to come, of anticipation, of sexual arousal in men and women. Lavender is the scent of optimism….and maybe of friendship.
Maybe it’s just the clean low humidity Oregon air but it smelled like the scent of lavender was in the air at BJ Willie’s in West Linn and the High Rocks Bar in Gladstone on September 11th and 12th as the West Linn High School Class of 1975 celebrated their 40th reunion.
Back then years ago when I was semi-fleet of foot and I knew I was an outstanding cook and a great lover. I knew that good things were in the offing…My normal husky body had slimmed down and the egg yolk a day that my mother had fed me early the first year of my life had worn off….My only flaw being the strange curly hair I had.
Back then in May of 1975 the lavender flowed from Sunset hill all over West Linn.
As both evenings progressed lies were told, memories found, old photographs resurfaced, friendships long lost dead rekindled, cliques re-clicked, dislikes were born again, old grudges surfaced and then submerged. I think the visit with old friends brought back the heady scent of lavender.
