I just got off the phone with a colleague that I haven’t spoken to in over 13 years. When I picked up the phone, it was as if no time had passed. We joked, reminisced about old colleagues, and caught up on what is going on today. I realized that people, and the light they shine, doesn’t change. Our personalities are very similar to the ones we had when we were two years old.
When I got off the phone, I looked at my iPhone and realized that the last time I spoke to her, I was talking on a Nextel phone. Nextel doesn’t exist any longer because it was bought by Sprint. The technology was so different and we have come so far. I just ordered a new protective cover for my phone, but in 2002, these covers weren’t necessary because phones had minimal glass. Life is so different.
But is it really? Recently, I’ve been thinking about visiting family that I haven’t seen in quite a few years. We like each other, but it isn’t often that we see each other. I’m hoping it will be fun and I think it will be…and with any type of cell phone.
