Freedom Of Friends
Today, after work, I am meeting up with two of my fabulous girlfriends for happy hour. Lately, life has been unpleasantly busy, and paths have been distant. For the sake of our friendships and sanity, we have started to put activities in place, such as dinner nights, t.v. show 'dates', and happy hour rendezvous.
When did friendship turn into so much work? Wasn't it yesterday that I was playing in a sandbox at my family friends? I swear I can still feel the way my long hair hit my back as I ran around with the neighborhood children... where my only conception of time was the shifting sun...I desire that freedom again... the ability to be completely free...to really let my imagination take hold and evolve.
Then again, life has other perks that can only come with age...such as happy hour. I guess the freedom is still with us all, it just comes in a bit of a different package...
