Last week I reintroduced myself to an old friend. It is probably close to 15 years or so since I last saw this guy. Can’t say that I recall how we lost touch or why. I just know that we did.
During the last few decades or so there have been a handful of times when we ran into each other. And each time was punctuated by a moment in which I thought that maybe we would restore our relationship. You know, we’d get a chance at renewing the bond, but it never quite happened.
After a while I must have just given up. Time passes and we forget how things used to be. The passion isn’t quite so strong and memories fade. But there is such a thing as redemption.
I know. I have seen it happen before. Can’t say that I thought about it happening to me, but I am glad that it did. I followed an impulse and chased Alice into the rabbit hole. One thing led to another and I find myself sharing this time not just with you, but with the dear old friend I mentioned above.
Want to see what he looks like? I have a photo. It is not perfect, but it will give you the general idea.
