Day 1560: Look

Yesterday, I got together with my old friend Hillel. When Hillel and I looked quite a bit different, we attended our high school junior year prom together.

Hillel and I have dealt with some major medical issues recently, so when we got our first looks at each other yesterday, we both said:

You look GREAT!

We argued a bit about who looked better, but soon we decided to look at new and familiar places on the North Shore of Massachusetts.

Now, you can look at those places, too.










As I look at some of those photos now, the horizon looks tilted, but it didn’t look that way yesterday.

I let my friends on Facebook get a look at me and Hillel yesterday and several of them wrote that we both looked great. I also showed Hillel my current Facebook profile photo (from our Junior High School yearbook) …


… and Hillel said, “I knew you then and you never looked like that.” Apparently, I looked like that just long enough for somebody to take a picture of it.

Later, I drove Hillel to my home so that my boyfriend Michael and Hillel could get a look at each other.  We also looked for our prom photo, but couldn’t find it. Then, when I was driving Hillel back to his hotel, I got a flat tire. Hillel, who always looks like a gentleman, waited with me until roadside service arrived and then looked up the nearest Uber driver to get a ride.

Later in the evening, Michael and I got a look at all these things:


Look at that map made of U.S. license plates!

Look what I found when I searched for “North Shore Massachusetts” on YouTube:

I can’t wait to look at all the comments I’m going to get for this post.

As usual, I look for ways to express thanks to all who help me create this daily blog and to you — of course! — for taking a look, here and now.

  2. One of beautful things in the life to have friends, but I mean real friends… I thought of this when I read you dear Ann.And also the beautiful views… “Look” actually brings so many philosophical thouhgts… and there are different exphrases, with the word, “look”… look, look like, look at, look for,…. I enjoyed reading you. Thank you dear Ann, Love, nia

  3. I love this post! And, except for the flat tire, what a wonderful day.

  4. I love the looks of old friends together. Not old in age, but old in familiarity. It’s a beautiful look.

  5. How wonderful to spend time with a friend from long ago. And what a beautiful day you had, I especially loved the white poofy clouds! PS: All your photos, and you guys, look great!

  6. The links made me look back at some old posts, some I’d read and some I hadn’t, but that’s okay. I was reminded of the saying “If we don’t know where we’ve been how will we know where we’re going?” which I learned a long time ago. And I was reminded of Yogi Berra saying, “You can observe a lot by watching.” You probably saw that one coming.

  7. The eastern shores are dear to me, having originally come from back east, and so glad you got to have time with an old friend! The photos are lovely. You and Hillel do look great!

  8. What a beautiful place. It looks like a fabulous day, excepting the flat tire, of course.

  9. Looks like a great day out! Thanks for visiting The Glasgow Gallivanter.

  12. Bloody great photos, nice to catch up with old friends who knew you way back when

  13. How wonderful to meet up with someone from long ago- and under such beautiful blue skies by the sea Ann!

  14. Looks like you and Hillel had a great reunion! Btw, I guess I’ll make one of his sandwiches Monday night! Ziezen Pesach to you all. ✡️🌿

    • My father always used to say at the Seder that sandwiches should have been called Hillels because Rabbi Hillel invented them way before the Earl of Sandwich. Thanks for the look, Sunny.

  15. Looking good
