I have several friends who live varying distances away from me. I am intent on visiting them in the near future. In fact, I am making a promise to myself that it will happen.
This week I took a day and drove 3 hours to see one of them.
Even though I haven't seen her in probably 20 years, it felt like I had just seen her last week.
We picked up right where we left off.
This is the view from her front door. That is the Connecticut River.
With my zoom lens.
Not much sun, but it was still beautiful.
As I get older, I think more about old friends. Is that true for everyone?
I know I haven't been very good about blogging lately.
I have been doing a lot of thinking, re-evaluating, questioning my direction. I'm at some new crossroads, one I don't entirely feel comfortable with quite yet.
Consequently, I don't have much to say.
Hard to believe I know.
I'm taking naps, long walks, keeping my life as simple as possible.
Trying not to get upset about things that I cannot change.
I still feel off balance, not on top of my game.
It's a strange feeling, one I am not used to.
So pleasing myself with a visit to an old friend is just what the doctor ordered.
This is the view from behind her house........where we went for a walk.
It was stunning.
A new perspective is always a good thing.
