“My glory was I had such friends” —Yeats. My smart, wise, funny, terrific “old friends” who knew me when, who accept me still, who care more for my happiness than my success. The instant connection when I see a Purple Cow T-shirt in Central Park or a Williams baseball cap in Paris: There are always new friends to be made with the words “Did you go to Williams?”
