STORY OF A REUNION
Jon and Kat Meet in London After 30 years
This week instead of the usual interview, I thought that it would be fun to see how a recent reunion went. I asked Jonathan Wall and Katarina Megevand the same set of questions. Kat also provide the photos which should encourage us all to make the effort and meet up - it looks like it was fun!
What they looked like in 1974
How long since you'd had contact ?
Kat: Started communicating by email early October. I saw Jon's name on a website... ackee.com, I think.
Jon: Kat got in touch with me from an old web site. I'm really glad - its been great to meet and talk. We've been in contact for about 3 months now.
What did you remember him/her being like at Priory?
Kat: Tall (langa-lalla in patois !), very amusing with always something humorous to say ... that hasn't changed !
Jon: I remember Kat as such a shy person...........now Kat and shy are opposites. She is so full of fun and life!
What were your expectations about meeting up after 30 years?
Kat: 30 years down the road ! We had been communicating a lot by email and on the 'phone before meeting in London so I was used to his English twang. I figured it'd be fun !
Jon: I was nervous. It could have been a disaster (just kidding!!) We had spoken on the phone a few times so I was looking forward to it.
What was it like to meet up again? Did you get on well?
Kat: It was like opening a Xmas present when you were a child ! Very moving and we just looked at each other and laughed all evening !
Jon: Fantastic! Do you know it was like we were friends who had been apart for a week's holiday and were catching up on the last 7 days.
How has Jon/Kat changed?
Kat: We've both aged outside but when we talk together we are 16 !!!
Jon: That's where it falls apart. Kat's got beautiful and younger but me...............just look at the pictures..............
Will you stay in contact now?
Kat: What do you think ?
Jon: It has taken 30 years to find a friend like Kat - we better had!
