Sandra, the girl on a train, 1981 (Paris)

We met by chance on a train leaving Paris in November 1981. You were an au pair in Paris, heading home to visit your family in Belgium. I was traveling back to Sweden. We were in a full compartment next to each other, and began to talk immediately, laugh, and play word games. I never felt so immediately connected to another person.

The time flew by and the train reached your stop. I quickly wrote my name and address - in Texas at the time - and gave it to you. We kissed gently goodbye. You wrote me in early December from Paris, with no return address. I have never forgotten you!

If this reaches you somehow - I hope you are happy and well!
