04 | Line of sight. That’s how my most successful friendships work. I have the deepest, most intimate relationships with those people who stay consistently within my line of sight. Once the project ends, when the reason for our contact wanes we both slip just over the horizon of one another’s immediate attention and, though our relationship may be significant, our time to grow together is limited by the speed of life. That’s why I love technology. Tools like Facebook, email and Skype have increased my line of sight. I’ve reconnected with high school friends. I’ve caught up with college roommates. I’ve discovered people with similar interests I would never have met otherwise.
Line of Sight – I’m thankful for friends willing to stay connected even though we’ve slipped beyond the horizon of one another’s attention.
