The More We Get Together…

Posted by

Oh, the more we get together,
Together, together,
Oh, the more we get together,
The happier we’ll be.

For your friends are my friends,
And my friends are your friends.
Oh, the more we get together,
The happier we’ll be!

As I sit working from home, I hear squeals of laughter coming from the basement where the Vs are blissfully keeping each other engaged. I reflect on the evening and morning past and I couldn’t help admiring how this nursery rhyme rings true.

As V and I sat flipping through the pages of my photo albums, we kept getting pulled back into nostalgic memories. I could show her pictures of my friends on Orkut and she could relate and say “Wow! she looks the same or she is so different now!”. I ask her about her friends and relate to the path their lives have taken. Or sometimes look at a picture and both go “Remember when that was taken?”. Or do a comparison of the people we were and are now and know exactly what the other is thinking.

Definitely makes a case for getting together more often and preserving those shared memories.

    its so nice when we have company in the US, be it friends or family, life is as it is monotonous and quiet with just us. Enjoy the company of the V’s this weekend.

  2. hey, another nostalgic blog! regardless of age and place, catching up with old buddies is always fun! the excitement of revealing all secrets and blab endlessly and remembering old things and laughing is something that makes you say ‘hey, i love my life’!
    hope you are having a good time!…:)
