He noticed an old friend sitting on a park bench so he strolled over to say Hi. The old friend’s face had aged dramatically. Time had not been so kind to him. The old friend immediately began to reminisce, speaking of adventures and events that took place long ago. It had been years since these stories were lived and yet the old friend spoke of them as if they were as recent as yesterday.
Mentioning every detail, capturing each memory like time was still fresh. As he listened to the old stories and witnessed the joy they brought to the old friend, he began to realize that the old friend was lost in the past. Time for him never really moved forward.
