I don't think there is a person in the US who was a teenager in the 1980's who doesn't hear the word "synchronicity" and immediately think of....
When I think of the Police, I am reminded of the afternoon that a group of us played "hooky" from an afternoon assembly to go to the Mall of Memphis to see Andy Summers who was there signing his book of photographs. This was in 1983. I was not old enough to drive and when we got back to school, my mother was already there to pick me up. I had to lay on the floor of Denise's car as we had to pass my mother in the parking lot. Then, I had to crawl out of the car and in between cars to the door of the school before I could stand and pretend to be leaving instead of just arriving. I did, eventually, confess to my mother... but not until I was safely in my thirties and could not be punished :-)
I would like to thank all of you for your kind comments last week when I lost my Molly. Your kindness is greatly appreciated! I wish you all could have met her, she was an amazing girl.
