1AM just took the puppy outside to water the grass. Waiting for sleep to overtake me. Turned very cold outside.

Wake up to hear Bush admin wants to take it’s time on deciding how to handle the auto bailout. Since when did they start taking time to get something right? Wish they would have taken time on Iraq, Patriot Act, Gitmo, wire-taping, financial bailout and much more that they screwed up.

Finding an old friend

Tuesday, December 9, 2008

From iPhone

Today after searching on and off for years and almost giving up I was able to track down one of my two best friends from high school and college.

In all honesty I almost have no memories of my younger years except those which involved one or the other of these two people.

Yes I can recall things and people other than these two but none bring forth the emotions like those I have with Donny or John.

When I made that call today to see if I had indeed finally found Donny, and found that I had succeeded I was so excited.

I know that the two of us are entirely different individuals from who we were in HS & college. And perhaps we have nothing in common other than our past. Still it is good to know he has survived.

John, as I learned from Donny has remianed elusive to both of us. Many years ago my parents told me they thought he had been killed in Viet Nam. I don’t know.

Today Donny told me that another of our good friends had died of an overdose. I hope that I can get some more details I would like to add him to my memorial book and offer prayers.

I had feared that something too might have happened to Donny and it was good to hear to the contrary.

What a good day today has been.

Tonight begins a monthly lecture series I will be giving on the Lotu Sutra. In my heart I will dedicate tonight’s lecture to my past friends, wherever they may be.
