I am on Facebook but don't spend much time on it. I use it most to check out what my family is up to and chat to them if I can catch them there. Another cool thing is to get in touch again with old friends.
Through another old friend I recently found back the one on the right in the picture above. We caught up on many, many years by email and found out that we had something in common we didn't know. We both have a blog and we both write poetry. I will ask permission to translate a poem of her as I love her work.
The above photo was made in 1980 on the yearly fair in September in my home town. I was 19 years old. There is a fair in every town in Holland and usually there is also a huge tent with a band. As you see above we did a lot of dancing. We were party animals. We had so much fun on a weekly base and have many stories to tell. We hang out in groups and went with mopeds to pubs in surrounding towns or with the train to the city to go to a disco. No cell phones, no computers just talking and dancing.
My friend is the one biking in the ditch in this story I don't regret any of it. It was part of being young and it is nice to look back on another time and another me. Nice too to catch up on memories
Yeeh I am that old. Next year I am going back to Holland for a visit and look forward meeting up again my family and with past friends. It is also interesting to look back on that time and be able to discuss how you experienced it and see if this matches with your friends experience from the past. Could be quite a surprise. Also good to hear how the rest of their lives went and to see if they changed much. Are you in touch with people from your youth?
