I was on vacation last week. In some ways it was the same as always. I was on Cape Cod and did some walking, kayaking, swimming, photography and other such things I do while down there. One thing different, though, was Liz.
Liz passed through our lives at the end of the 90s and the beginning of this century. She lived in our area for about two years before moving on. She stayed at our house for a few months as she was transitioning between places. My wife kept in touch for a short time after she left the region, but contact grew less and less. There was Facebook, but little else.
This spring my wife contacted her again and Liz came and stayed a few days with us on Cape Cod. In some ways it was like she had never left, even though it had been more than a dozen years. We also did some things we normally don’t. I’m not talking big or exciting things, more just visit someplace we hadn’t seen in a while or sit in our back yard for a long evening chatting.
Overall it was a good time. I’m glad she was able to make it back to the east Coast for a visit.
That’s my smile for this week, reconnecting with old friends.
