Missing One

There have been a number of people who have been a part of my life, who are no longer people I know. Most of us have drifted apart because of time and space, not because of a fight or even disagreement. I would say that its not because of some major event, but more often than not, it is a major event. Its been events like high school and college graduation, marriages, new jobs and families.

This weekend marks the homecoming weekend at the university I attended. There are a couple of reunion-esque events taking place, which I will attend. As I’m preparing for them, both mentally and physically, I wonder who I will see there. I wonder if the people I miss the most will attend, and if they will be as happy to see me as I will them. Will any of them have missed me too? Will they be surprised at how long my hair has gotten; will I be surprised at how much weight they’ve lost (or gained)?

I know we’ll all get together this weekend, and have a great time. And we’ll say that we should do this more often, make it a tradition, keep in touch. There are a few people in this group I’ll actually mean this with, and I hope we actually do it.
