I was just wondering how much we influence each other. How am I different because of the people I've kept close; how am I different because of those I've left behind. And how am I different because of the ghosts that follow me?
If you and I had continued to be friends-
Would we be better for the continued investment in each other's lives?
I would like to think that we would be better- not worse. That we would have kept each other accountable in a way that no one else in the world could do-
That our connection and devotion to each other would have spilled out to touch other lives. And that they too would be the better for it.
I'm in a reminiscent mood; and not really interested in that admonishing voice warning against the "what if" game being a waste of time.
I was just wondering- what do you think?
