One of Those Days

I once had a friend named Donna. Donna and I used to take long walks in the woods and talk about anything and everything. She was as interested as I in everything from world affairs to the paranormal; she was extremely intelligent and well-informed. When Donna spoke, I listened, and when I spoke, she listened. We argued and disagreed and together created new perspectives and gained new insights that changed how we saw the world. That changed us.

Some days I miss Donna more than words can say. This is one of those days.

Friends like that are hard to come by anymore, despite instant connections via the Internet.

Treasure what you had... "One Man in a Thousand, Solomon says..."

I do treasure the time we had -- just wish it had been longer :-)
