Well, after the advice of an old friend who recently located another old friend we’d been looking for, I have opened a Facebook account in an attempt to see how many folks will suddenly rise from the limbo of my past. To my total surprise, several people I’m still friends and in contact with to varying degrees got in touch with me mere minutes after I opened my account, and by the end of the day on Friday I’d received a couple dozen notices from far and wide, including people I haven’t seen or heard from since high school. It’ll be fun reconnecting and seeing where life has taken all of us.
I may hate MySpace, but Facebook intrigues me for its crazy-fast ability to foster communication, and I hope to find a few people I lost touch with long ago. I’ll just have to wait and see.
