It’s been a long day, so I’m keeping this post short.
I think I have written about this sort of thing before, but today I had another opportunity to reintegrate parts of my life back in Atlanta with our new lives up here.
This weekend, our climbing community hosted a competition that brought hundreds of climbers from around the southeast to one of our local crags. And amongst those hundreds of climbers were some of our friends, a number of whom I hadn’t seen since July. I really appreciated the opportunity to reconnect.
But what was particularly enjoyable was having these old friends up here in our new home town, and seeing how, even though so much of our daily lives have changed, our friendships haven’t. Of course we don’t see each other as often, but it was comforting to see those “ties that bind” stretching from Atlanta up here in the mountains.
