:: All It Took Was a Holler ::



:: All It Took Was a Holler ::



Lately I have not been logging onto my MSN Messenger.
So, when I logged onto MSN, I received a holler from an old friend, Mr darkseed.
"Do you know they are making a movie titled Into The Wild?" he enquired.
"I do."
"In fact, in case you didn't know," I added, "My lj name was inspired by the same title, from that fascinating book."
"I remember you tell me about it a long time ago," he replied.
I did a quick recall.
It has been almost seven years since I started penning down entries on livejournal.
It has been almost fourteen years since I read Joe Krauker's Into the Wild as well as Into Thin Air.
It has been almost nine years since I made a trip to Juneau, and sailed up Tracy's Arm with M.
After that harrowing ruptured appendicitis episode.
The years keep adding up.
I thought of darkseed, that I've known him for, seven, eight years?
And how little we keep in touch
Although we're kept updated of each others' lives thru proxies, and proxies of proxies.
And through LJ, of course.
It was just a month ago when I finally met up with another old pal, pyrosx.
He finally bought me dinner, after a long wait from both sides.
I bought him dinner almost two years ago.
The years keep adding up.
As new associates join the inner circle while the old ones fade into oblivion,
How does one hold onto one's ties in an growing circle of relationships?
I suppose, time is still the key.
Friends, who are friends, will be able to withstand the test of time.
And with time, one grows to learn too, the differences between friends, and better friends.
There are friends. And then, there are friends.
"We should all meet up, and you should treat me to the ITW movie when it shows," he taunted.
"Sure, why not!" I laughed.
"And we'll bring our Wii over to your side one of these weekends!" he suggested.
"Set!"
Sounds like a promising weekend.
