fountain of youth

It's the anti-aging secret of all time, one guaranteed to melt away the years in just a few short hours and make you feel younger and better than you have in ages. No surgery is involved except for carving out time to really listen, cutting to the chase and keeping each other in stitches. I left our reunion lunch yesterday feeling 21 again . . . except happier, wiser, more blessed and less stressed than I did in college. The hands of time simply stopped turning for a few hours while we caught up on what matters in life. There is absolutely nothing and nobody like a dear friend, emphasis on dear. Someone who knew you when. And loves you anyway.
(Currier & Ives, c1874)
