Orientation was today. I met some soon to be new students; two beautiful tennis players from Texas named Monica and Amber. I will drive them to the airport tomorrow. I also met a new Performing Arts major named Sarah.
I spent some time with Kim, she’s part of the orientation committee. We talked and laughed a lot together. She complemented me on my hair. And I worked with Lindy in the box office. We have such a good time, just hours of laughter. I later watched the NBA championship with Samarah, played with Mangus, Allison and Craig’s cat, and visited with Tracey, Jeni, and Ann-Marie.
And now I’m in my bed in the middle of the night. I just mentioned nine different girls. I wonder if any of them are Her? Right now the closest thing feels to be the Durango postcard on my wall. There’s a foot and four inches between us, but we often seem to be on the same level. I went and took a picture of her favorite tree the other day.
I like it when I miss people. Reminds me that they really do matter. You can’t miss someone unless you first genuinely share your life with them.
