I’ve delighted in that experience and relish the friends I am so in-tune with that picking up where we left off is as natural as smiling or hugging.
I had a recent experience that turned my affinity for “picking up where we left off as though no time has passed” into a hiccup. More like a cough. Make that a choke.
(It wasn’t you, if you’re one of my friends reading my blog. It was someone…I don’t remember who. Besides, I don’t think my friends read my blog. I’m very popular, however, among others.) 😉
It occurred to me, one reason we may pick up where we left off is that the other person hasn’t changed, hasn’t grown, hasn’t budged. That would make you either pick up where you left off or have to introduce yourself (who has grown and changed) and a new person to that ‘old friend.’
What if the other person is the same old…?
