It occurs to me that I spend most of my time engaging and interacting with people who have little or no significance nor bearing on my life as a whole. Conversely, the people who matter most to me are, by and large, many hundreds or even thousands of miles away. It’s something that I’ve gotten used to. I don’t necessarily think about it all that often, or not consciously at least. Still, there was a time when the people who mattered most to me were nearby. A precious few still are, but many more are not. And I miss them.
