I Should Be Sleeping

I should be sleeping now but I am lost in thought about a million different things. I keep reading It Was Logical and thinking about where I want to take it and where I need to take it.

Last week I wrote two posts that I am really proud of. They are called Lessons for Being Human and Is It Intuition Or Desire?

I like them because they had a certain flow and feeling that I felt like had been missing from my writing. That feeling is important to me. It is what makes these posts into something more than just words slapped on a page.

Been thinking about a couple of dear old friends and how I rarely speak with them. I know exactly why it is the case with one but there really isn't an excuse for the other. It bothers me, the silence that is. So does the distance.

Absence doesn't always make the heart grow fonder. Though I am blessed with many good friends these are two of the most important and I am concerned.

Things change. People change and friendships evolve.

It is possible that this is what has happened but I am not certain this is so. I love them both so I won't just let them slip away. They are too important.

Should it come to pass that they really are over I will have the knowledge that I did all that I could to save them.

That is important to me. It is part of what helps me sleep at night, that knowledge that I did my best. Sometimes we fall short, but better to try and fail than fail to try.

This was part of Just Write #42. Most of the time you will find these posts on my main blog but today I decided to do things a little bit differently.

I'm practicing following those small thoughts about people that wander in and out so quickly, following them to a phone call or an email. Sometimes I think that there are way too many people to keep track of, but really, my mind only reminds me of a few at a time. I can handle that.
And I love the feeling of being remembered. So I know it's worth the effort of reaching out.
Thanks, Jack!

Hi Betsy,

That feeling is important. It helps us to stay connected and keeps our bonds from fraying.
