People stay in your life for a myriad of reasons. Though relationships tend to require a lot of work, there are a few that just work.
I'm talking about the friendships where you've forgotten why bonds were forged. The type where a person can walk in and out of your life without consternation, mostly because these bonds are free of expectations.
I wish I knew what kept them around, or what combination of memories allows them to overlook my absence, because if I've not been clear, it's me that floats in and out of people's lives.
Considering I've made a move from country to country every 2 to 3 years. I feel privileged to have friends in multiple geographies. Our meetings are never long enough to philosophize and wax lyrical, but it makes my world a little less lonely.
Thank you friend.
