About a year went by since I had the chance to hang out with my friend Jon.
However, we both seem to catch each other at exciting transitory times in each other’s lives. After a few failed attempts over text message to meet after work during the week, he invited me to come for a weekend hike in Franconia, NH with his dad. So after work on Friday, Jon and Bryan came by my apartment to pick up my gear and me. We started th2 4/ 1/2 hour drive North and dove headfirst into conversation about book we’re reading, places we’ve been in the past year, and what’s next in our lives. Great friends are those you fall right back into fluid conversation with, even after not seeing each other for over a year; and that’s precisely what happened with Jon and me.
