Well hello there, my dear friend.
'Tis indeed been a while since I've stopped by for a visit.
Days and weeks have passed, and also has time and memories come and gone.
Thanksgiving was sweet and hearty; full of smiles and laughs and the warmth of family.
Weekends were spent divulging in reckless dancing and drinking and enjoying the company of friends.
Tedious nights spent working, along with enlightening hours of conversation; all spent in the same room on the same days.
The same miles covered by train rides with the comforting sounds of music to relax me to sleep, and, to provide daily doses of forced reflections upon an always optimistic yet melancholy soul.
Giant trees carried and decorated for Christmas, twinkling lights hung, and candles dispersed and lit to create the perfect holiday sanctuary in the comfort of my own home.
Fits of secret jealousy.
Days of pity as friends lost their jobs.
Minor milestones along with minor disappointments.
In all, a decent yet comparably minute span of life.
And yet, life, still it is.
