Curiosity got the better of me this evening. I checked out one of my old ex-girlfriend’s websites to see what I had been missing all these years. She’s doing well, and I’m glad to see everything turned out well for her and her family. While the parting is tough, in the end, I always want the best for those I loved.
I live a long way from there now, and if not for the Internet, I wouldn’t be able to indulge such curiosity. Now that I know, it satisfies a sense of rightness with the world. All is well, everyone I care about is fine.
All that has past is another life to me… foreign and somewhat uncomfortable now. What price is change – that it takes the familiar away?
