Life .. I just learned of the death of a high school friend (it happened five years ago but I just read about it today). Interestingly, he lived in Mountain View, California (10 minutes from where I live) for some of his adult life .. we might have even seen each other at some time and not realized it. I would have like to have re-connected with him.
I posted that on facebook earlier and then realized that this might be the better forum to post about this, that those of you who follow me here probably know me better than all my "friends" on facebook. I think I'll delete it -- DONE.
Anyway, I took a very different path after high school and haven't stayed in touch with anyone. They all went off to college and I got married and had kids. I'm just a little sad that I really haven't stayed in touch with anyone. Seems like when I take a turn in my life, I leave the past behind instead of keeping some of it with me.
