    Reconnections is just the theme for me- I have just reconnected with a friend I haven’t seen properly for 7 years! We had tried to get together before, sometimes passing in the supermarket with a quick hello and “Let’s meet up again”, but had never succeeded! Now we’re trying to re-establish things by meeting about once a month- had our second meeting last Friday. We’ve both suffered depression for many years, have had similar jobs, but she has stopped work and is on a disability pension from her old employer now. We discovered that some of our interests had diverged slightly, but really we are much the same as we were!

    There’s somebody I use to be close with several years ago who I’ve since lost track of. Our lives headed in different geographic locations to say the least. I was pleased to see their name pop up on facebook the other day and have sent a friend request hoping to reconnect with one another :-)

    just lately i tried to reconnect with my high school buddies. and im so glad that technology today really is a big help. i found some of them through friendster and i was able to talked to others through their cellular phone. i’m so happy to know their whereabouts and their achievements. we actually organized an alumni homecoming which is scheduled today.

    I’m reconnecting with a passion rather than a person, but there are people involved. I’m joining a group of craft people that I’ve only known via the net so far and we are going to try to make it a regular thing. As I mentioned to you a while back I’ve been very sick for a few months now and have finally started to feel a bit better so I’m reconnecting with a part of me that I’ve neglected (to my detriment I think too.) Our first meeting is on June 10 so fingers crossed it goes well and we can do it more often. :)

    I belong to a Flickr group but haven’t been able to participate for quite sometime. Last time I submitted a photo was Week 3 and they’re now on Week 12. I finally gotten around to submitting a photo again. I wonder if I can keep it up this time around. Taking themed self portraits are fun. :-D

    I’ve been thinking about reconnecting with my old CRON (Calorie Restriction – Optimal Nutrition) buddies. I started LifeCandy as a health-nutrition blog as I was inspired by the other blogs in the CRON community. I miss that old group of folks where we’d watch out for each other’s health and well-being.
    Love this idea, Shai. :)

    I’m attempting to reconnect with my blog… not working out so great right now, but I’m getting there! Have plenty of ideas for posts, but suffering technical difficulties. On a more serious note, with regards to connecting with old friends, this is something I intentionally don’t do, so at first I wasn’t so keen on this task. Many of my friends from my adult life in my home town are not worth reconnecting with, there are specific reasons I disconnected with them in the first place when I moved away. School life was also a total drag, hated every minute of it, which is odd considering I love learning, but the social side of things, meh, not so much fun (btw my kids will NOT be attending a single sex school!). I also keep my friends lists on FB and twitter relatively short, I can’t stand having friends for the sake of numbers and who I never actually converse with. However, I can report that I am (very selectively) reconnecting with some people that are popping up on facebook, and now have a few ‘friends’ on my friend list from primary, intermediate and high school. It’s a start, maybe I’ll even talk to them sometime!

      Hi, Nicola. Blog reconnection sounds good. I wish you all the best with it. And, the friends reconnection – you never know. Maybe something great will come off it too. :-)

    I have reconnected with an old friend that I grew up with. We moved apart geographically and slowly lost touch. It felt like we never lost touch as we get along so well. I am also reconnecting with a blog I started a couple of years ago and let fizzle. I started working with it this week and will launch it next week. :)
