Day 38: Reconnecting

Saturday, September 29, 2012

Tonight I had dinner with an old friend who I haven't seen in almost ten years. She and I went to college together (the first time), but we didn't actually meet until I stayed with her in London when I was there on Spring Break and she was studying abroad. The next time we met was on the other side of the country, working together in a coffee shop. Such a small world.

She is a very special person and though we were never particularly close, I always felt an easy and natural connection with her. Seeing her again tonight made me think that, if things had worked out differently in terms of timing, I could see myself having ended up with her instead of my current partner. It could just be because he and I have been fighting so painfully lately that I see alternatives everywhere. In any case, it was so wonderful to reconnect and be reminded of a time when I was younger, healthier, and so very much more carefree. Simpler times. Now I just need to figure out how to incorporate some of that spirit into my life TODAY.

    I remember you as that girl. I remember us both as more carefree...but I know how easy it is to forget and I'm so glad you got a chance to glimpse yourself as I still remember you.
