It Takes A Long Time To Grow An Old Friend. (John Leonard.)
I don’t live very close to my friends, but this doesn’t mean that I am not close to them. I have one friend in particular that I rarely see. It can be a matter of years rather than a matter of days between setting eyes on each other. But I know that when we do next meet up, it will be just like we were talking that morning. That is just the way it is. Our various responsibilities and lives get in the way. We have never lost sleep over this, although other people cannot understand it.
