Last night, a long distance friend and I spent close to three hours on the phone, talking about anything and everything. I cleaned house while we talked, and she cooked and baked, our conversation a natural accompaniment. We live almost four hours away from one another, and our conversations are always epic in length, but this was one of our longest. What was one of the greatest things about it is we never ran out of things to talk about. There were no long pauses because we were too busy sharing bits and pieces of our lives that the other one wasn't present for.
Today, I'm grateful for long conversations because they allow me to reconnect with people I don't get to see every day. They allow me to maintain one foot in the lives of those who are far away.
My thoughts, experiences, challenges, and goals. Right here. At least once a week or so. Oh, and opinions, too. Those will definitely come in. Join me!
