Not Writing

Lately I haven't been writing. Its not that I don't want to but that I'm just not taking the time out to sit down and do it. What am I doing instead? Going to the gym, working, hanging out with the kids, etc.

Recently I was at a wedding in Boston. One of my best friends from high school and early college years married his college sweetheart. The wedding was quaint, and held in a pasture outside of Boston. The food at the reception was delicious especially the vegan cake.

It was nice and a little bizarre seeing my old high school buddies. It was interesting to see how little people's personalities had changed but how their lives had taken different courses. There were no huge surprises, although my friend Joe Galli, has taken on a neat direction. Galli recently attended a horror make up and design school for a year and a half. He received an associates degree in specialty business and hopes to start to do horror animatronics. Specifically he talked about doing choreography, and design work for Haunted Houses.

I also saw my high school girlfriend, Emilie. Emilie, is Erich's younger sister. It was a little odd at first, seeing her after all these years. I probably haven't seen her for 5 or 6 years. She looks the same, maybe a little taller than I remembered, and with more tattoos, but still essentially the same. She still has the same sense of humor, a little dry, a little sarcastic. And she still seems undecided about what she wants to do with her life. I don't think that's a big deal, as so many people have no direction in their lives, but its always a disappointment when people are forever rudderless. We only talked for five minutes, if that. It made me remember why I dated her. Its funny to have been so young once upon a time...
