Reconnecting with the Past
I ran into an old elementary school friend whom I haven't seen in 30 years or so. Thirty years! So a bit of our recent time communicating has been to talk about our mutual past, our shared history, and our dim memories. "I remember the time that you...." "So do you remember when we...?" and so on.
At the same time, it's neat to find out what people have done since then. It's interesting to find out what we share in common (food, wine, travel, film) and what we don't (politics, music, movies). Yet it's great to widen your circle of friends by adding old ones to it.
