Love the post! And so true...I ponder often about those I lost touch with years ago, either through my fault or theirs--or no one's...just growing apart.
I wonder why we somehow lose a friend or two along the way - I do often think of them. And actually I have found some of them again on facebook or myspace. Lovely post, Dorkys!
I love this. Thank you (and also thanks for your help with my SITS technology challenge :-)! I have heard "friends come and go with the different seasons in your life". Now that I have a gray eyebrow and gray chin hair, this makes so much sense!
Perfect image with such a clever post. I have definitely reconnected with some keepers through reunion planning and Facebook, but honestly just not missing that many old friends. They were friends back then. Over it.
I guess we all have friends from our past that we've lost for some reason or other. Facebook has been a great way to reconnect with my long lost ones at a cheap cost and LESS pressure and maintenance. Let's face it, it takes hard work and time to keep friendships, especially those we are trying to re-establish.
I've dropped a lot of friends that I worked or played with "in real life" (maybe "non-cyber" would be a better word? even "cyber" friends are (often) "real". Most of the time they have gotten married and had families and "moved on" and I felt more and more like a third wheel or a hanger-on outsider.I recently had one pop up on Yahoo Messenger - hadn't seen him in 3 years - and I've not said hello (yet) as I suspect he's unemployed and will want to ask if I have (or know of) a job for him.Instant dread has replaced the really bad jokes we used to share.I'll bite the bullet sooner or later though and give him a "Hey youse..." but I'm in no rush.
hmm. And yet again, a blog entry comes along at a most timely time to address the needs I presently have....thank you
