My friends Joe and Laura (not my brother Joe–this is a different guy) moved away today to North Carolina with their two little ones. Sad times for me, although I’m glad for them–new jobs, close to family, nice place to live.

My psyche is wired a bit differently from most people–I may not see someone for ten years and then connect like no time has passed at all. I usually don’t miss people because they’re often in my thoughts (and heck, the Internet keeps people only microseconds away). This time is different. I guess I’m getting old (or middle-aged, at least). Good luck, Joe and Laura–may the wind be always at your back.
