Yesterday I met someone I have not met for a very long time. Almost a decade in between us since the last time I saw him. He provided much colours to the memory of my last two years in koleq, so his absence for the last one decade had been sorely missed.
It was such a big relief that he has not changed a bit. Unlike most of us he keeps to the same belly size, the same hair, the lingo, the same laugh, even the same way he makes himself comfortable when seating. Still as sharp and witty as ever.
There is nothing more comforting than finding that your mental picture of your close friends when we were in koleq is still valid after all these years.
I felt really good after that meeting, although there was much hesitation before, as I don't normally cope well with uncertainty. In fact I had never felt that good for quite some time now.
