My friend sent a wonderful response in a short note. Since then, we've chatted briefly over the last week. I'm delighted that my invitation has been received so warmly. After so many years of distance for no good reason, I'm re-establishing a friendship that should never have faltered.
We have so few opportunities to really connect in our busy, modern world. Even when we do, we neglect our true friendships too readily, too easily. We pass a moment with so many people, but we don't delve below the surface. We have snatches at surface level interactions. Our time is spent before screens, in a mild state of hypnosis, trying to occupy all our time. Without meaning to loose our grasp, we let go of the relationships that give our lives the most meaning.
As for me, I decide to change. I'm listening. I'm conversing. I'm making an impact, an impression. I'm adding real meaning to the connections with others that I have. Won't you join me with your own connections and interactions?
