On old acquaintances

Today someone from my past reached out and said they thought of me.

They wished me well and reminisced about the time we met.

That’s right, the time that we met. We had only ever seen each other once on our travels and he thought of me enough to send me a message 10 years on.

We don’t do that enough.

I’m going to start that now.

Reach out, say hi, wish them well.

So many people I’ve lost contact with over the years because we take it for granted that we can always be a part of their lives over social media.

But as we all know, it’s never a real connection when we just sit on the sidelines watching like voyeurs.
