Once again, I draw upon my memories to sustain me.
A few years ago one summer, while Kaitlyn was still in undergrad at Campbell, she was home for the summer. Allyn and I went on a 4 day trip on our motorcycle to Helen, Ga. We took the back roads there and we went through many old towns that people no longer lived in. There were old service stations that were abandoned years ago, old diners no one ate at anymore, and to me, it made me wonder what might have gone on there years ago, made me wonder about the stories of people who lived there long ago. Thinking along these lines, it made me think of the movie Fried Green Tomatoes. This was a movie I always loved. It was about an elderly lady telling a middle aged woman the story of something that happened long ago, in a town that was no longer inhabited, and by that time of the story, looked just like the ones on my trip.
As I said, this was one of my favorite movies and I think Kaitlyn had seen it once and I couldn’t remember what she thought of it. When I got home, I told her of my trip and also mentioned the old towns I went through and that it made me think of the movie Fried Green Tomatoes and that now I felt a need to watch it again. She looked surprised and told me that she had this urge to watch the movie for some reason and watched it while we were gone. This reinforced the reality that we were so very connected.
So, I dedicate this video to you Kaitlyn. I love you.
