I am blessed to have a best friend in Australia whose friendship goes back 40+ years. Twelve years ago, we met up in Washington, D.C., where we had both lived for a few years while working for the IMF (International Monetary Fund). While sorting through boxes of stuff in my ongoing efforts to declutter and simplify, I came across a journal I had put together after returning home from that trip.
Trish, this is for you.
