GoodBye, Buddy

With the advent of the Internet, the idea of friends has taken a new twist. Suddenly, you can potentially be good friends with someone you've never met, and probably never will. The previous generation, for the most part, cannot fathom this, but that's just due to the technological changes that have happened in the last 20 years.

Still, it's amazing how close you can become with an online buddy. And while I know a huge number of people online, the number of them that I would refer to as good friends is much smaller...the number of people that really know me, and that I feel like I have a connection with is small, but those few mean a lot to me. So, to see one of them go away, well, that's just as much a loss as if a 'real life' friend moved away.

Still, I understand the situation. Sometimes, even though you enjoy somethng, you have to give it up in order to make the best choices in life...and giving up your 'online life' to make your 'real life' better is rarely a bad thing.

I will miss wolfye a lot. He chose to drop LJ and his 'online life' in order to get back to 'real life' and to make changes that he wants to make, and I support it 100%. At the same time, though, it sucks to see him go...but I'm glad to see him do what needs to be done.

Good bye, Chris. Keep kicking ass and taking names. Don't ever compromise yourself and don't ever let anyone change you. If I ever make it Down Under, I'm looking you up. It's been great to know you, my brother.
