This week I’ve had an old friend from high school and college here visiting with me here in Lezhë. After not seeing people back home since leaving in March (or even graduation the May before or SPS graduation before that), I’ve only kept in touch with a “distilled” version of my previous social groups. And, for now, I don’t mind that.
However, having a friend stay who I haven’t seen in two full years and having it be effortless and just as wonderful as it always was just reminds me of what I have to look forward to when reconnecting when I go back…..and for keeping in touch with PC and Albanian friends in the future.
Contemplating a major, open ended, move suddenly doesn’t seem so terrifying anymore.
