Lost Friends

Just saw a name of an old, very dear, friend whom I've not seen or spoken to in ages pop up.

It brought home how much I really do miss her dark humor, intelligence, creativity and company.

No idea where she is now but I hope she's happy and well.

I really do miss some of my old friends more than I can put into words. I really hate drifting away from people I was once so close to.

I hope I bump back in to her (and other lost friends) one day.

Also to have the fun and excitement and closeness :)

Yeah, unfortunately in this case I don't think that would be the best of ideas. There were too many *issues* surrounding our friendship (not of our making I hasten to add) that couldn't be resolved.

Long story. Not for LJ. Buy me a pint sometime :p

As long as the memory of them is with you, part of them is as well. And quite often, once you start thinking of a long lost friend, lo and behold they turn up.

That's a very beautiful and thought-provoking quotation. :)

I've lost touch with a few I wish I hadn't over the years, but a lot of the time, destiny has a way of bringing people who are meant to be back together again. I can think of one person I've not spoken to in years who recently got back in touch with me to my delight, who I hope to be seeing once more in the new year, if not before. :)

One of the things that makes me occasionally question my desire to move tot he UK is the knowledge that I will leave some of my dearest friends behind and likely see them only rarely thereafter. Two of my very close friends, with whom I shared a house for the last four years, are heading out onto the Kerouac Road, and I fear that with the entire world for them to explore I will see them only occasionally from now on.

I have to assume I will make new friends, strengthen friendships with people I've only know distantly until now, and otherwise continue to build a good life for myself.

But it does give me pause. I treasure my friends...

Are you ever planning to come over to NZ for a holiday? You-know-who would be a happy fluffy critter if you did. And I really want to meet you - finances are stopping me from popping over to the UK at the moment.

Anyway, I empathize with you on this one. My closest girlfriend moved to the US in '99 and I only get to see her once every 2 years. It's always a painful reminder of how utterly divine it was to have her near me all the time, and how I really didn't understand how fortunate I was.
