Edna Buchanan once said, “Friends are the family we choose for ourselves” and I think I would have to agree. I don’t know how and who I was in a former life, but I’m glad to know that whatever I did landed me with the people in these photos to have for my own. I am not the most affectionate, or the most easy to be with, or always conscious (as many can attest, I’ve fallen asleep in bars, gigs, rockband sessions) but these people suffer through my company when I need them, and sometimes show up even when I didn’t think I did.
I don’t see them often enough, the hazards of working from home forces my hand to really have to come out and make plans if i just want a glimpse, a lunch, a dinner, or an all out, stay over drinking session with any one of them. I don’t mind. I just miss them sometimes, since I can’t just reach out, tell them we should go out for a break, and shoot the breeze.
Thank goodness for modern communication like instant messaging or social networking for making it easier to catch up, or plan to catch up.
So who wants to meet up?
Speaking of catching up, I just got engaged. 🙂
