I often forget whom I've spoken to or what I've said, at least over a longish period of time. But some things remain, sometimes for ever. When I was in college, I had two townie kids visit me every day when I was living off campus. They were two junior high Princeton town kids, and they were so incredible. I've always identified better with junior high kids, because I was in junior high when I had my psychotic break and became catatonic for a week. Some how, my maturity level stopped there at that moment. Last night, I dreamed about both of them and it was like I was back in time with them. I experienced the same emotional feelings, and it was a wonderful roller coaster.
So we travel through time and on this site, we communicate with certain members, and though we may seem to move on, we also leave a piece of ourselves with the ones we connect. Trust may be the most precious of human traits. We live in a world were our leaders, the ones who are supposed to be protecting us and the world, constantly let us down, so trust is hard to come by. But when it occurs, it brings us together in a special way, a bond that maybe can't be defined. Eventually for me, that person became my wife. I wrote about that bond in my novel, and it takes 180,000 words to come to fruition, at the end, but I think it's worth the wait. It will be worth it for you should you find that someone in the real world. Hugs.
