people observation #10: a simple thought on relationships past.

it's weird to sit here and think about the many relationships that pass by in ones life. I think back to years ago, and take a look at all of the people I didn't know back then that I do know now. I think back to years ago, and I also realize all the people I did know then, that I don't know anymore. This blog is for the latter.

I hate to say it, but there are so many people in our lives that we click with yet simply lose touch with over time. It makes me sad.

I have never had such a relationship as I did with my best friend from fifth to eighth grade. We came of age together. But then she moved. and simple as that, everything changed. All of a sudden we no longer knew each other. Don't get me wrong, we tried. But over time we find things out about ourselves, and we gain new sets of values.

Every now and then I will stumble upon an old picture or song that reminds me of old friends. The picture of us standing on the stairs, the picture of us after the Summer of Hell, the picture of us in the RV on Spring Break; "Build me up Buttercup" by the Foundations, "The Freshman" by The Verve Pipe, "Float On" by Modest Mouse. Nostalgia.

I miss you guys.
