Everybody is sleeping, and its not even 10 o'clock. My husband has arranged for a babysitter to watch our precious babes tomorrow. He has a cold and fell asleep on the couch at 9:15. Will we have to cancel the sitter?
Reconnecting with friends created a sentimental rush of gooey ideas when I started blogging. People sort of dropped back in to my consciousness, and I was truly excited and happy to pick up on those threads. Now there is the realization that being allowed a glimpse into your day by reading your blog, or looking at your photos in another arena, illustrates how removed we are from each other. This is without qualification or judgement. I really don't know what has happened for you in the past 8 or 10 years, besides the big milestones like moving, marrying, or becoming a parent. Where did we leave off? Why did that happen, growing apart? Is the distance the glue, the buffer, or simply the consequence of proximity, both time and place? How is it that we became friends those years ago? Some of the ties that were broken coincided with great change in my life. I wonder now, what were your changes, and how do the growth, reflection, maturation, fear, confidence, sorrow, joy translate? What I would really like to know is, How are you, my long lost friend? Oh, and do you drink coffee? I didn't then, you know.
