Re: Oh, my.
Have to agree with Barry... Maybe it's wishful thinking, but I'd like to think that
the things I had in common then are things I still have in common with y'all now.
And those things might be intangible and nonspecific, but they certainly went (and
go) far beyond a shared interest in the band.
To encourage Barry in his search: I've since found another friend-group similar to
the Lostees in a pile of local folk (and friends thereof) that just sort of glommed
together on Flickr.com and started hanging out on occasion to take photos
together... we eventually started a private Flickr group (we're a Cadre!) and it
functioned much like the List... we organized parties and shared stories and dreamt
up tee-shirts (Bink actually featured prominently in this once again!) and then
generally branched out well beyond the topic of photography, becoming good friends
off-line as much as on. Some of us even ventured up to NYC for a snowy weekend one
February a few years ago, proving once again that random groups of internet friends
can make interesting travel partners...hehehe! The Cadre was brilliantly vibrant
and fun... for a while. Then two of the more charismatic and organizational members
moved to other cities, and the group went public again in a new form (the DC Social
Flickr Group), and grew and headed off in a new direction (once again more photog
based)... and now I feel as though barely know anyone there. Much like I feel as
though I don't really know the Orchard anymore.
Of course, I've hung onto the friends I made, despite the loss of both the List and
the Cadre contexts. It makes me wonder if this isn't just how life goes: We keep
moving, and we hang onto those who *stick*. I'm ever so glad that some of you have
*stuck*... I'm excited to have caught up with some of you anew on Facebook (it's so
fun to see your lives expand and change and develop...) and I cherish the shared
memories with -
all- of you!
And the Ouchy joke will. never. die. Sorry, Nik.
