The first post is already up and off to a great start!

This past week has been interesting for me. I found some old friends via MySpace(tm) and have spent much time in my head reliving parts of my past. Some good, some not so good. I think the past is a place we should all visit once in a while; even, the parts that hurt. The reason being, by remembering the past: where we've been, what we've done, who we have hurt and been hurt by, we can see how we got to who we are now; In this moment of the tapestry that is our lives. A checks and balance sheet of ourselves.

I love that with these people comming back into my life, it seems like they were not even gone. Oh lots of catching up and this is what I'm doing now, but that bond, is still there. Picked up right where it left off. How long will they stay this time? who knows..well you know what I mean.

People who have known you as long as they have known me and I them, you can't bs. You can't hide who you were verses who you are now, they know, they were there. What they do is reaffirm how you've changed and how you haven't. They ground you, they understand things about you that others can't, and probably never will, because they were there when whatever caused you to be who you are happened.

Friendships are like books in one way..you can put them on the shelf, but sometimes you pull that book down again and relose yourself in it's story..sometimes..you get a sequel.

So true, and they help you find your way back to parts of you that you may have misplaced along the way.

So, what does that make me at 50?? rofl
As far as I am concerned at 30 you finally grow up and start your life. At 40 you are getting into the swing of things, at 50 you are old enought to know better and young enough to enjoy the knowledge.
I can't wait to turn 60! :)

Note to group. 30 is no where close to "old". I'm 48 and firmly entrenched in the belief that I'm nearing middle age. I don't know about you guys, but I plan to be around for a while longer!

I am 37 and I recently had someone tell me I was almost middle aged. It is something I do not feel, and so I hate to have someone say it like it's a fact. 30 is when my life got better, when I was stronger. 37, I still have a life ahead of me.

As for friends. It can be bitter sweet. Sometimes you are reunited with someone who knows you well, but you realise you no longer have anything in common with them. You catch yourself making promises "sure well get together" but you know you never will. And that is OK. Knowing when to let go is a great strength I believe.

I've been reconnecting left and right with people via my myspace. The problem is some of them I'd rather leave un-connected. Ha!
