Today I had lunch with my friend Mira whom I’d not seen in over a year. You probably know how these things go. You’re going to get together, and then one thing happens and then another. And then suddenly you look at the calendar, and months have gone by since you’ve seen each other.
The good news is that no matter how much time has passed, we pick up right where we left off. We laughed about the time we somehow miscalculated a tip and left the waiter about 200%. We laughed about former colleagues and boyfriends. We teared up when we talked about the people we had lost.
Although we said we’d not let so much time go by again, we probably will. That seems to be the nature of our lives these days. I’m just grateful that we still get in touch.
Still, if there is an old friend you’ve been thinking of calling, then do it. It’s nice to share memories and talk to someone who knew you when.
