On my upcoming trip to San Diego, I've agreed to meet for dinner with Caroline, an old flame from a decade past - someone I've moved boulders for and the genesis of my recurring dreams with my Guardian Angel, Alethia.
From the photos she sent me, she looks almost the same - a face frozen in time, little worn for the years but remarkably free from the ravages of time that has decimated the beauty of other loves from that time period.
It's a fool's errand, most likely - but your thoughts?
Dinner with Caroline next week.
Terrible idea. Nothing good can come of it. Cancel dinner and delete her number from your phone.
Terrible idea. But since I don't know you, I'll encourage you to go so I can read about the drama and fallout that will inevitably ensue.
Ten years is a long time and people change. Go in with an open mind and see what sort of friendship you can create with her.
She clearly has the hot for you. Go and close on the deal you should have closed ten years ago, you wuss.
So many years come and gone
And yet the memory is strong
One word we never could learn
Our love is frozen in time
I'll be your champion and you'll be mine
I will remember you
- Amy Grant "I Will Remember"
