A very nice quote to sum everything up! I haven't read that book, but I would read anything that could produce such lovely sentiment.
I do, in fact, have a current messenger that I use! I use MSN under the handle [email protected]. However, I may attempt to change this to a different handle in the near future as a.) I hate that handle and b.) I recently discovered that [email protected] wasn't taken. This would be much easier and more memorable to my PC friends. I'll be happy to catch up any time!
I agree. I suppose it's like the last few sentences of Stephen Chbosky's The Perks of Being a Wallflower: "So, if this does end up being my last letter, please believe that things are good with me, and even when they’re not, they will be soon enough.
And I will believe the same about you."
I'm rather optimistic about this too. Seems like it has promise. I might ask, though, do you have a messenger that you like using nowadays? I wouldn't mind catching up. Or just some other way of contact. It'd be fun to chat. I could fill you in on the past, uh...five or six years? Haha.
I think Tattsu has sunk permanently into the depths of the internet, sadly. If nothing else, I hope she's somewhere happily raising horses or doing what makes her happy these days.
I'm very optimistic that my time here will result in many new friendships and an abundance of new memories, and I'll be happy to share in them with you for so long as you wish to stick around. Hopefully very long roads indeed!
Well, I must say, it is good to know those days remain not only with me. You know, most of the people we used to know, I still know. There remains but one I have not found. You most certainly know who it is that is still misplaced... I feel that maybe one day, she too will turn up.
What I know is that it's good to be back, for both of us, and I think the past, however misguided, ridiculous or perfect, does not compare to the prospects of the future, by the virtue that it is infinite in scope and possibility. Long roads ahead, right?
I most certainly remember. The very day I returned, I wondered "were is P.K. Hammer? Is he still around?" and proceeded to look for you but couldn't find conclusive information on whether you still visited here or not. To see you back, even if only for a moment, is wonderful. I've never forgotten the people who were my friends here long ago and created many wonderful memories for me, and finally, upon my own recent return, I couldn't be happier to see other vets of the place coming by to greet me.
I certainly miss the years that we lost, and I will forever curse my own stupidity in suddenly leaving, but closure and a reaffirmation of friendship go so far in putting this mistake behind me. Thank you for your kindness.
Hello, Alan. Long time no see, my old friend.
I have found myself falling into serendipitous circumstances lately, and the decision to check on this site after so many years gone certainly seems like one of them, to know that an old friend of mine is still around and alright. Granted, you probably don't even know who I am, since times have changed so much, and we were so incredibly young.
So I'll end this message with a name I have not used in years, and it will likely be the final time I use this name.
I've missed the years we lost, my friend.
You knew me as P.K. Hammer. I hope I have not been forgotten.
