A Wedding In Skokie. . .
I am not sure what brought forth that memory but there “it” was. I am pretty sure it was August but I am positive it was 1985 and it had been quite the year. It was also a year where I was twice a member of a wedding party. Not so unusual for a person in his twenties, right?
Each couple, their stories up to that moment and since
as well as each ceremony introduced me to many new experiences.
Maybe that’s why I am thinking back to that time in Skokie Illinois. Weddings are definitely times of transition. Summers too. And that particular Summer saw me on the move from California eastward. I don’t recall a return visit to Skokie since 1985 but Chicagoland has been a long time favorite place to see. Over the years, I have been there many times for business and for pleasure. Perhaps that’s what made the memory resurface as I plan another getaway later this month where my ActiveRain time and myself might appear to be missing for those of you who might keep “track” of such things.
No, it’s not Chicago or any part of Illinois. Not even a wedding. Summer continues and so do the remembrances along with memories-in-the-making.
