I was scanning the statistics collected on my site–just the usual, how many visitors I’ve had, where they’re from, how they got here–and noticed that I had some links from LiveJournal subscriptions. This isn’t unusual; my blog automatically cross-posts entries to my LiveJournal, and since those entries contain links to my site, they’re going to show up in my stats report. I didn’t recognize one of the LJ addresses at first, though, so I went to the site and looked up their profile. Turns out it was someone I was friends with 3-4 years ago, but haven’t talked with since she paid a disastrous visit to Springfield.
And I’m ashamed. Even now, there is some lingering anger with her, but it has mostly gone cold and dead like an ember left too long in the ash. Life’s too short to hold grudges, to cut people out of your life simply because they frustrate or anger you. If they’re directly hurtful towards you, then life’s too short to keep them around, but if they’re just frustrating?
Years later, I wonder what she is like. If she has changed. Lord knows I have.
Dave Gill texted me this morning to say that he was in town and was I interested in hanging out? I was indeed, so we had breakfast at Gailey’s and talked for hours. I’ve missed theological conversations of that nature. The rest of the day was spent cleaning and playing games, just enjoying a day off. Lunch with Brenda tomorrow, and April back in the evening ^.^
I’ve got an idea for FnC Tuesday night now, and I definitely need to invest some time in writing tomorrow. I’m putting together a story set in the EVE universe at the moment (just ideas, nothing cohesive yet) that I’m hoping to co-write with a guy I met on there, and I really want to start writing poetry again.
If someone were to write a poem about you, what one characteristic would you want it to focus on?
And if you want to take it a step further, what form would you like it to be in?
