I have posts that I’ve thought of writing — even some I’ve started writing. But actually I’ve been completely consumed by Facebook the last 2 days. I’ve reconnected with a bunch of friends from elementary and jr. high school. It’s been so cool. I’ve been on Facebook for a long time, but none of the folks I was looking for were there. Now, the 30 and over crowd is finally catching up. So nice to talk to so many old friends.
Jr. High School is the only grade level I haven’t taught. Kids are horrible in those years. My friends and I were no different. It’s really inspiring to reflect from a place of maturity upon our stupid factions and plain meanness. We laugh at it now; many because they are parents seeing their children pass through the same stages in which we last knew each other.
One thing is true. Human connection transcends time. How can it be that — with so many people, so many life experiences, so many changes, so many years– it seems like we haven’t skipped a beat. I love this about relationship. I absolutely love it.
