My Old Friend

by Stephanie Casher on April 6, 2006

One of the other things that happens during a Mercury Retrograde is people from the past come back into your life. I got alot of that this Retrograde – from stumbling across ex-boyfriends on myspace (gotta love myspace, lol), to reconnecting with people I haven’t talked to in over a decade. A virtual flood of once-familiar faces, all of a sudden back on the scene, bringing with them memories of times and places almost forgotten. So strange, but at the same time, so comforting. To know that you came from somewhere, and that you touched people along the way. To be reminded that the bond of true friendship is not something that can be broken by distance or time. And to be able to cherish those trips down memory lane because they illustrate so beautifully how far we have all come…

I believe that people come into your life for a reason, to fulfill some kind of joint karmic mission. In most cases, when that mission is accomplished, people fade out, and you gradually lose touch. It happens, life goes on. But when someone passes out of your life, and then comes back — that signifies a cycle, a circle, interlinked paths that will continue to cross at intervals, for moments of clarity, support, and random infusions of love. It is a beautiful thing. I feel so blessed to be linked up with some wonderful and extraordinary individuals. It’s time to make old friends new again :-)

In other news, I sent off another manuscript to another publisher yesterday. Yay! So that’s two now that are making the rounds. Work on WHEN LOVE ISN’T ENOUGH is temporarily stalled while I paint my dining room, lol, but I should be back in full swing, writing-wise, by next week. Finished my taxes last night, and maximized the heck out of my deductions to score a sweet refund – Yay! And the sun is shining today – Double Yay!!!! Is it finally Spring???
