A couple of nights ago at work, I ran in to my best friend from middle school and her dad. I was working the Stanford women's basketball game, and her dad is a massive Stanford fan (who spent years trying to groom her to go there - so that by the time college came around, she went somewhere on the East Coast, or at least that's how I heard it). I wasn't wearing my name tag, and I think they both kind of recognized me, but none of us said anything. We all just kind of stared awkwardly and then continued on, like a brief record scratch.

It's been almost ten years since the last time we talked. So much happened to me in that almost decade that I rarely stop to think about it. Seattle, home again, Cal, art school the long way 'round... Sometimes the universe forces you to stop and contemplate how far you've come.
