I hope it's Okay with the blogosphere if I confess a little. I'm selfishly sad tonight because I miss my friends. Brian and Carrie are in Portland, Oregon. They just moved there. Brian was my college roommate and co-hort in philosophical mayhem. They are starting a new life together there, and it's good for them. They live together now, and I know how wonderful living with your soulmate is. Still, I'm sad. Listening to the new Coldplay, a band Brian always liked. I was selfishly sad when Chris left for the Navy when we were very young. I was depressed for a long while about it, but I never told him. I know it's selfish to want your friends to stay where they are, just so you can see them. But I can't help it.
