Today was the day to reconnect with old friends and see how they are doing. I am woeful at keeping in touch with friends. Being a workaholic time tends to get away from me when it comes to keeping in touch with friends, also all my friends live overseas, which makes it a bit more difficult. And sometimes sad because its not like you can ring them up and go for coffee or a game of pool. Not being able to see them on a regular basis just makes keeping in contact more difficult. But say that I am very lucky with the close friends I have, they understand how much I have to work to get where I need to be and that sometimes my mind is elsewhere. I find that when we finally are together, the time is more precious and we get to enjoy it more. Mocha frappuccino’s for breakfast sitting on the porch, blueberry pie for Canada Day lunch, singing badly at 3 in the morning going home from university, sitting up till early morning just talking about art, life and love and eating cream cakes on a wet thursday afternoon. I am lucky to have the friends I do, I thank you.
