As I continue to make arrangements for my move home almost magical things are taking place in advance of my return. While I was home over the winter break I was able to reconnect with several old friends and spent a good deal of time with one very good friend in particular. As I have mentioned in past posts we got along incredibly well, amost as if we'd never been apart. It is great to still be friends and be the people we are today. And yet, as great as that visit was... there were times when we both felt as if a part of us was missing... you see, once upon a time we were a trio (sometimes joined by a fourth) and we could palpably feel the void left by our missing friend. As good as thing were, we were not complete without her.

Happily this friend has returned to us. After many years apart we find ourselves drawn back together. We're not the same as we once were (if we were we'd likely be dead now), but two things will always remain: our friendship and our love for one another.

And in a few short months we can all sit together again, share a drink, share some memories of the "old days" and make new memories to be remembered at a later date.

Welcome home, Teresa!
