The transit of friendships through one’s life is interesting. Friendships will come and go as we transition through all life’s stages. Times change, situations change, and people change; we grow older, and even best friends can grow apart. It happens.
But sometimes, whether by accident or by design, there are friends who re-enter our lives picking up right where we left off. Yes, you’ve both grown and changed, but from the moment the conversation starts, the years melt away.
A long overdue visit to North-East Florida to the home of Rich and Patti rekindled a friendship that has lasted about 50 years. Their home is situated along the Nassau River and its labyrinth of salt marshes. Having grown up around the salt marshes, the smell alone brings back such vivid memories, with a soundtrack from 1969. Rich and Patti’s view of nature along this coastal part of Florida beautifully added to the great conversation, delicious food, and superb wine.
