Reading Yearbooks

Sometimes life is unique. You move on and leave behind a certain part of your life, and when you look back it’s never quite the same. The photographs don’t look like you remember and you discover a wealth of people and faces that once upon a time meant so much.

Some of those people have changed dramatically. I’m probably one of them. Some of those people probably haven’t changed at all. Some of those people are married and some may be divorced. Some have enlisted in the military, and some are settling down to careers. Some of those people I haven’t talked to since high school, and most of them I’ll never see again. Many of them I wouldn’t recognize if I saw them on the street, and I wouldn’t remember their name if I did manage to recognize them. Some of them have done some amazing things, and some of them are dead.

Life can be quite unpredictable. We look back to yearbooks full of end-of-the-year messages, and life seemed so ideal.
