Lifelong Friends…

I can't believe we live in the digital age. If you are reading this, I will most likely know you my whole life. Many years from now, we may indeed still be facebooking each other, and where status updates used to read "Toughest midterm of my life, anyone for drinks?" will someday read "Toughest bowel movement of my life, anyone for some prune juice?" Therefore, I will never say goodbye. There will always be words scrawling across the page, and our fingers diligently picking our way into each other's lives. Certainly there is no way to have an intimate interaction in key strokes, but it is my hope that our typing keys will continue to connect across the bounds of oceans, continents, and time. I feel there is something valuable to be translated across the keyboard and through the lens. I will do everything I can to fight the barriers and constrictions that are about to enter into my relationship with you, and I hope we touch each other's lives in the coming years. I plan on this being my primary journal of experience and expression; as well as my attempt to connect you to a life you can only experience on a screen. So for as long as this lasts, I will live in your computer… and then on to prune juice!!!
