“A conversation with a friend feels resumed, even if you haven’t spoken in years. It has an effortless spontaneity about it, as if after a momentary interruption. No prelude or breaking-in period is necessary, and one is never at a loss for words. Anything goes, and probably will.”
~ Patrick Kurp, Anecdotal Evidence
Because of my travels over the break and a chance conversation with a friend who is moving for a new job, I had the pleasure of having several conversations with old friends. Even when snatched between singing kids songs and conferencing, every ounce of conversation felt like one resumed. It’s the blessing of having good old, old friends.
