Gloriosa superba - Glory Lily, Tiger Claw

We were sisters in learning and sisters at heart.

For some of us, the last time we met was like more than 30 years ago.

We shared snippets of our lives and what we remembered of the past when we were schoolmates - prefects, softball, contemporaries who have made good, those who did not, jokes your kids tell you, food and much more that I cannot recall but what the heck we had a great time - great food, great company and loads of laughter.

Fun stories that came alive again but will we remember them ten years from now?

Would it matter that we would or would not because our individual lives have borne the fruits of our experiences for better or worse.

We live, we die and some want a glass urn, some to be carried away by the wind to rest on the crest of the waves. Dust to dust, ashes to ashes we came with nothing and we take nothing with us, not even memories. So what is life about if we do not just live it as happily as we can.
