Red Sky at Night, Sailor's Delight

During my first days at MMA I learned the following sea rhyme:

“Red sky at night, sailor’s delight. Red sky in morning, sailor’s warning”

Last night that saying came true thanks to an Alumni Networking event at Red Sky in the Faniuel Hall area of Boston.  From the moment I entered the bar, it was like I was 21 again and surrounded by a great many dear friends that for whatever reasons I have not seen in many years.

It was wonderful to catch up with everyone.  I am not surprised to see how successful we have all become (although still a bit shocked to realize that many of us our managing MAJOR shipping projects!)  Where does the time go?!

For 4 hours it was just as if not a day had passed since we threw our caps in the air on Cape Cod almost 10 years ago.  I am so thankful for such a great group of classmates!

The other awesome part of last night was finally putting faces to names of graduates above and below me that I see throughout the "interwebs".  My school may have been small (under 900 students during my years) but the brother/sisterhood that continues post graduation is second to none! 

Thank you to Danny and Steph for getting this together.  Thank you to Red Sky for hosting and of course thank you to all my classmates for attending!  I have not laughed and smiled that much in years!!!
