If Only I Had Known
One of my classmates' sisters ended up being the curator of a leading London museum. One of the family's sisters now has an artistic company of her own and another is the CEO of a Virtual PA company. Another classmate became an Olympic athlete and a third was born into a high level horse racing family and lived in the most amazing house with stud and stables attached. They had a swimming pool and a full size trampoline that I remember, plus they were generous with their time and facilities to allow me to recuperate from a major medical operation by using these.
Several of my former classmates have successful professional careers as classical musicians (piano, cello, and violin that I know of).
I think if I had known half of this when I was at school, I would have tried to stay in better touch with them.
Interestingly enough, in pursuit of further data on people I remembered from 35 years ago, I just logged in to LinkedIn. To realise that two of my former colleagues from my last job and someone attending a course I'm involved in organising have viewed my profile in the last week. Better straighten up and fly right on there, then, for sure. Maybe something to consider next week when I'm back at work and focussed on the job in hand, perhaps.
