AFTER 50 YEARS FINDING OLD FRIENDS!

Queenie being held by BayBay-Best Friends

     "The circle of life", this is a line from an Elton John song, which I think was from the movie, "The Lion King". It is such an appropriate line in regards to how time passes and suddenly the present connects with the past. 
     On Facebook in the last couple of months I have found friends from the past, even from fifty years ago. By befriending one, I saw other names and asked to be friends with them.
     The amazing insight is that even with the amount of time that has passed, it's like picking up where we left off, even better, because maybe we knew each other, in the past, but didn't really run in the same acquaintance circles, now though, we share similar life styles and interests.

I have reconnected with a few and it's been kind of cool. Regarding one in particular the reconnect was so natural it was like the last time we'd seen each other had been only a couple of weeks.

Most of the old friends I've tried to locate I haven't been able to find. Apparently they are either no longer alive or don't have an internet presence.
