Photos, memories and friends

Having just spent the best part of the evening looking at tons and tons of photos I've grown rather sentimental. I've known a ton of marvelous people over the years and whilst many have come and gone there are several folk who appear fairly frequently throughout my photo collection over the last decade or more.

I do really miss some very dear old friends who, for whatever reason, I'm no longer in communication with (people such as Michael H, Nick & Dawn, Alex, Justin P, Angela, Emily, Tim, etc) but I do feel blessed that I've managed to keep in contact and still see regularly a whole host of people (more than I expected to be honest) from 'many, many years ago...' such as dodgyhoodoo, weaselbitch, ukmonty, corone and melissamilitelo. It's also good that I'm back in contact with Surfer Boy again after too many years of not really seeing each other. I'm glad I'm still in contact with some of the others from the old crowd, even if they no longer live locally or even in the country (that's you jessworld, gothglitz and karkehan!). I've also known meryc, dredd_bob and dj_steve_rbn for over ten years now and not forgetting daver2323.
Out of the new wave it's actually quite shocking that people like gypseymission and faerierhona have been in my life since the mid-90's. And chrisdamage and lydiamorgan I knew when they still weren't legal :-p

Feeling quite chipper tonight afterall. 2005 hasn't really started off too badly. I've had some fun and some tears. Good food and good friendship. This year is one that I think will be good and I look forward to knowing you all for many more to come.

That's not bad at all.
From my middle school days, there's one guy left I'm regularly in touch with, he's been my best mate for 20 years (that's scary, isn't it?). There are a handful from the time I get the odd email from or at least see at the Wiesenfest each year.
There's one from the process engineering course and now only one from my translator's course (I meet her at least twice a year).

My main old roleplaying group in Nuremberg has pretty much disintegrated, not just not playing anymore but with friendships broken (all relationship related which is very sad as those were great people). Others have family or go to Uni far away and are too busy to meet old friends.
There are other gamers I see once a year at NURD, one of them being Jürgen Mayer of Disaster Machine Productions (you might have run into them at Essen Spiel, they produced German versions of The Last Exodus and InSpectres).

From the time over here, I've completely lost touch with Colin from the Druids after he's moved to Bristol, other than that, many people are still here and there's quite a core group of friends (e.g. raggedyman and robinbloke).

It's a bit scarey isn't it.

Whilst I have you, when are you and Chris out and about again?

scary, isn't it? You may be one of my ten oldest friends! Possibly one of my 5...
