Last night I had a very bizarre dream and from somewhere in the very depths of my mind, someone who I haven't seen for years and years made a cameo appearance. It's funny how the mind works. It thinks of things you haven't thought of in the longest time and transports them to the forefront of your mind, on an unassuming Monday when you simply weren't expecting it. Sometimes I remember things wrong, or two separate memories get merged together when they really had nothing to do with each other, so I'm left wondering if what I'm remembering ever really happened. And then of course those thoughts are nigh on impossible to forget. Oh life. This is all too much for a Monday afternoon!
So this afternoon I'm left thinking if it's possible to miss someone you never really knew very well in the first place. Perhaps I'm just feeling particularly nostalgic for that particular point in my life. Or maybe I just miss the idea of them & the particular way that I have remembered them & our friendship. They won't be the same now as they were then. And maybe they were never really like that at all. Our paths crossed at a very specific point, for the briefest of moments and although I don't know why, I think that's just exactly how it was supposed to be....
