#tbt Pauline was my French teacher in junior high in the early 70s. The year was 1992, I want to find her and reconnect. I found an old letter she wrote with her parents phone number and thankfully it still worked. Upon contacting them their excitement was heartwarming. Somehow without ever meeting them they knew who I was and gave me her address. Unfortunately Pauline had moved at the exact moment I sent the letter out. Somehow even though it took two years my letter finally arrived in her mail box in Florence Italy. She was very excited and responded immediately. Reconnect we did… Fast and furiously!! This picture is during our first visit in 1994 in Florence with a very young Jami Cakes.. Since then I spent a lot of time in Florence and in LA and writing Canti NOTTURNI together.
