Remembrance Of Things Past

In a different place, a friend from a different time is going through the same experience as I am. In a different time, we traveled in the same circles, and in different circles, we grew and changed. At the same time, we are passing through different experiences of similar lives. While we walk similar paths, we walk to different places...or are they really the same?

As time passes, we can't help but commit to our own paths, focus on our own steps, live our own lives. Yet, once in a while, we are reminded of the people who began the walk beside us, and the places where we started. We can't go back. We can't change the path we have taken, nor would we necessarily choose to. But it is comforting to remember. It is enlightening to see the footprints. And it is encouraging to know that making different ways, we have all arrived safely.

In a different place, a different time, we started on the same path, and all these years later, we are far apart, yet closer than you'd think. I guess you never really know when you start on a path where it will lead...
