week two of facebook helped me start finding high school friends and i think i have laughed more in the last two weeks than i have in months. when i think about those times and the fun and the hard times it is interesting the choices that lasted and were important and those that didn't matter at all even though they felt important.
my best friend in high school was joyce nitz. her mom always used to say "is it of eternal consequence?" she said it often enough that it would make us mad, but here it is twenty years later and the same question totally applies!
