This week, I realized I was fairly isolated from the rest of the world. I mean, of course I'll bump into my family and friends occasionally, but I'm on break from University right now- I have too much time to use, no wheels to get from X to Y (unless they're borrowed), and no work to pour myself into (except for a blog, of course).
So, I am actively making the attempt to reconnect. Last night, I went to see First Class with some friends who I haven't seen in a long while and it was... Really nice, guys. I mean, just to get that sort of actual presence back was nice in itself. There's something text and voice don't quite "capture" for me, if that makes any sense. People always seem so far away.
But I'm convinced my resocialization is something the universe is rooting for. On the way to the cinema with three friends, I bumped into another long lost acquaintance while getting some gas for my current borrowed vehicle. Now, this an event far from "extraordinary"- bumping into someone from your hometown around your hometown is fairly commonplace. But it was just so odd to bump into someone and suddenly remember they existed, you know?
It's just odd for me to come home and suddenly see all these people again. It's like faces from the past are just suddenly back again. Really, they were always here. But I just wasn't here to see them.
Like a more handsome Indiana Jones,
Daniel, of course.
