We have a set of friends with whom we are very close. We thought we’d lost them at one point, but we were wrong. They are still a vibrant (albeit too infrequent, of course) part of our lives.
We have other friends we communicate with on an infrequent basis. We know that–regardless of distance of “time and space” –they are dear friends.
Still, others come-and-go in our lives. We may lose touch for one reason or another. Technology is advantageous at this point. One benefit of linkedin/facebook is that we can reconnect with some of them.
So, imagine my surprise when a friend from several years ago sent me a message on linkedin…and lo and behold…she lives in Austin!
From ~2000-2005 I worked on a committee with L. I adored her and everything she brought to the program we supported. She got out when I should have. In hind-sight, I admire her for that, too.
Long-story-short, when we realized we were in the same city and both had flexible schedules, we started co-working. So far, I have been the one who is helpful, but she’s already scolding me for not letting her return the favor. I don’t care; she has a deadline that I do not. Plus, I know she’s good for it. 🙂 She and I hold the same value of balance. Come to think of it, I need to see if she’s also a Libra-now-Virgo. (Zodiac changes or not, I still crave my balance.)
I’m glad to see that our professional-with-waves-of-personal friendship from several years ago can be completely resurrected now that we are both entrepreneurs who can help one another. Expect some grand things from AYW, now that I have her help!
 that one is for you, LL1
