I have an amicable relationship with all of my old friends and girlfriends, except one. It has been shocking how many of them read this blog even though we don’t talk. I was lucky enough to make a lot of friends pretty much everywhere I have been, high school, college, all of my jobs. Some of those friendships faded naturally, some I let go of, some let go of me I’m sure, some are still around even if they shouldn’t be, and a lot are still going strong due mainly to the internet and cell phones.

There are two things that really strike me when you do actually meet face to face with someone you have not talked to in a long time.
