There are certain walks that we take every year often with a close friend or relative. One of these walks is around Lake Quannapowitt in Wakefield which we take with our close friends, Paul and his cousin Mary. It is an easy walk, only about four miles with benches along the way and a strategically placed coffee shop if you desire a break. We decided to make this past Monday the day for our annual trek around the lake. As in the past, each of us was to bring something to eat for the lunch break we always take in a clearing at the head of the lake. We were to bring the sand- wiches, Mary dessert and Paul, the beverages. We de- cided to bring sweet potato sandwiches and sesame cookies from our favorite Chinese bakery. On Mon- day, we drove to Chinatown, picked up our sandwiches and cookies and then drove out to Wakefield where we all met up in the parking lot at the lake. Everyone had on their walking shoes and was anxious to get going, so it was hello, hello and let's get walking. No sooner than we got on our way, we began exchang- ing stories about the year that had past and the events that had happened in our lives. We spoke of illnesses, trips we took, politics, all without breaking the pace of our walk. It was a beautiful day so we commented on the weather, the beauty of the lake and the lovely homes that surround it. When fi- naUy we reached the head of the lake and the place we normally have lunch we stopped, spread out a blanket on the grass and then each of us revealed what we had brought for lunch. Mary brought a container of cut up fruit, Paul, two thermoses of coffee and we revealed our sweet potato sandwiches which were a total surprise. We passed them out, Paul and Mary, who never had sweet potato sandwiches, approached them cau- tiously; when they discov- ered they are delicious they both took seconds and we felt delighted in our choice. As we spoke, the conversation became more introspective, we spoke of the many years we have been taking this walk and how fortunate we are to have such good friends. We spoke of the many events that we have shared together some sor- rowful, many happy. When a curtain of nostalgia seemed to be descending over us, Mary characteristically stood up and announced enough of this, let's get moving, so we quickly gathered our belong- ings, checked to make sure we left no wrappers and tossed some scraps to the squirrels that had been peer- ing down at us from the trees surrounding our picnic site. The balance of our walk was spent in comparative silence, we had reminded each other of the closeness of our friendship at lunch and as so often with close friends, the need for conver- sation was no longer neces- sary, we were simply happy to be sharing our walk around the lake together and thankful for our friend- ship.
