Last night I had a reconnecting conversation with an old friend. It felt good. It wasn't long or drawn out, just a catching up session. We lose people like this through the years and that's a shame. We all head out in different directions and lead our own lives. It is good to re-establish the things that made us friends to begin with.
Today, I had a conversation with someone who wanted to know some things about my ancestors and things I remember from my childhood. They unknowingly took me back to my grandfather's farm and to my favorite remote place to go to play in the water or go fishing. They reminded me of long forgotten relatives and friends without even realizing it. I could smell the air and feel the sensations in my imagination of what life was like back then. I am amazed at the details I can remember from my childhood. To this day, I could take a mental walk all around my grandfather's 160 acre farm step by step. I know it so well. My life was innocent, yet complete back then. I need to revisit those times more often.
