An absent mind, finding something to say. DCD

My visits to SG have been woefully scant in recent months, giving how much I care for those here. It is a less than subtle reminder of changes of interest, whether it be the flavor 15 seconds on the web or something a bit more epiphanal. Certainly, those of us who pulled ourselves away from the keyboard long enough to engage in quasi-connubial activities to procreate will note the dearth of casual "me" time. Raising my three children and my stepson have brought a tiring but in moments unfathomable joy.
Still, left to toil in maudlin recollection, we are left to yearn for the old times and friends. This is a post I placed on Facebook a short time ago.
Friendship is temporal. It is about people, in a time and a place brought together by a circumstance.
Facebook can be a wonderful tool for reconnection. It can also serve as a reminder that people do change. Friends from the past are sometimes best remembered with the hazy eyes of nostalgia.
It came about from a few "zombie friendships", people whose experiences left them unrecognizable, hence in need of a burial. It id profoundly sad to have memories of a cherished soul sullied by what they have become. Like corporeal death, spiritual absence leaves nothing but fond thoughts and painful longing.
