It’s this time again. Every other year, I have this combination of guilt, regret and sorrow of having lost touch with certain people.
Usually the impetus is that they work close to me, I discover that we now have a mutual friend, or that I see them in person.
I want to say, “Let’s forget the past and start over.”
It’s never that easy. Except that there are some of us that have a short-term memory that I am so willing to go up to someone and say with a big smile, “Hey! I haven’t seen you for awhile. Let’s talk like we used to!”
