The Internet is finally back on. Wahey. Funny how one becomes so dependent on so small a thing.

Life is such that everything is dynamic. All things fluctuate, and in the most, relationships with the people around you. As you change, so do they, and time reveals differences.

Cracks in friendships.

Or the strengthening of bonds.

One of the saddest parts is when two people just grow apart. Not due to disagreement or argument or disillusionment of any sort, but they simply change. And for no rhyme or reason, the glue that once bound them together no longer holds the same potency. And despite all efforts by both parties, there comes a point where they no longer try and are forced to sit back and admit that the company is no longer the same that it once was.

Sometimes it is sad to think of past friendships, those misty watercolour memories softened by time, of the past smiles and laughter shared, knowing that things are no longer the same. Sometimes there's that little stab of pain, knowing your place has been replaced by someone else, and you are no longer privy to those private smiles and private jokes.

I am reminded of a quote from Schubert, the composer.

"No one feels another's grief, no one understands another's joy. People imagine they can reach one another. In reality they only pass each other by."

Perhaps there is more in those words than I think. Yet, all those who have passed through my life have made a difference, no matter how slight, and it is through those interactions that I have become what I have become. If we have only passed each other by, so be it, but in the passing, people are changed.

And therein is the beauty of life.
