Sometimes it's funny to me how much things change. I know that change is inevitable and should be expected, but it becomes more obvious as I get older. I can see much more of the change with this larger history over which to look back over. Friends change, I grow away from them, we come back together and try to re-establish things with our new breadth of experience and "wisdom." Sometimes it's easy to fall back into friendship, sometimes it's not so simple. Even friends I've connected with relatively recently...I can see these changes more vividly somehow. I know that it's all for the best in the end, but it sure is scary as all get out to realize that things you thought were so solid might be changing phase.
That's my introspective philosophizing quota for the day. :)
