I live much of my life surrounded by technology and people involved in technology who are all talking about technology. I tech, and progress. I also love spending time with old friends, something I don’t get to do enough.
This past weekend, I had the chance to do it for the first time in a long time. I hadn’t seen many of these friends in ten years or longer. I was wondering if we would still have things to talk about, and if things would be like they were a long time ago.
That anxiety disappeared when I drove off the pavement in the Central Valley.
When I got there, I realized that my friends, were still my friends. We’ve grown up, and spent most of our time hearing about each others’ kids, but the comfort I had with the conversation was different than I have with other people on a regular basis. I was more comfortable, more relaxed. Not sure, if it was the friends, or the location, but it might have been a little of both.
