to grow though life remaining friends with your Obama friends.

Friendship is truly one of the most important things in the world. To remain connected to people you shared a passionate experience with - but not for the nostalgia, but for the future growth. There is so much growing to do.

You are young and life is long
And there is time to kill today

And then the one day you find
Ten years have got behind you
No one told you when to run
You missed the starting gun

That is from the perennial stoner classic Time, on Dark Side of the Moon by Pink Floyed.

I'm still friends with my stoner buddies from my early workforce years. Funny, I was more of a democrat back then, and he, being from Alaska, loved Ronald Reagan. We used to have the best conversations.

I think I'm going to call him right now.

The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.
