Recently people have been coming out of the woodwork like crazy from my past! I wonder if it is the apocalypse, or if it is just the power of the world wide web? I choose to believe the latter. I do wonder why certain people fall in and out of our lives for periods of time. Is there a karmic connection here? Are other people besides my mother having this same experience?
I do miss being with people in person. I would even settle for a phone conversation. The internet is so convenient and there are many people I would not connect with if it didn't exist. On the other hand it is too easy. You play catch up via email or Facebook for a few emails and then there isn't much left to say, so then you fall out of touch again indefinitely.
Do people ever just hang out anymore in real life? I miss that. There is a lot to be said for being in the physical presence of someone you care about. We are losing that as a society and I find this fact scary. I am still looking for the whole beam me up Scotty part of technology to come to fruition. It will be oh so much more satisfying. In the meantime, an email from an old friend still can make my week!
