I was going through some of my old stuff, slam books from school, old pictures of friends from college, pencil shavings, a piece of paper saying "friends forever" dated back to 2000, when i was in class 6 loads of cards and old movie tickets and my first ever book, a gift from my best friend from kindergarten which dated back to 1992, I was barely 5 then. these things brought back a mixed bag of emotions, not just nostalgia but a realization, of how time never stops, and the only constant thing was change but there are somethings that never change.
After months I came accross things that belonged to a friend of mine who is not almost a stranger, our friendship has become transient and i too have moved on; but then coming across the things made me smile.. I knew despite drifting apart i still harbour the same feelings as I used to once, friendship has not really changed but it is we who have changed. there is a residue of memories made, even though the dear one has long since, moved away. and this is life! And in life shit happens!
