Yup, I'm still connected. With all that's happening, we didn't get a chance to visit the CANTV office to have our connection changed. So maybe one more day with service. All the boxes are packed and things are in order for the mega move. So while we wait, here is what's on my mind today.
Thanks for the nice comments regarding yesterday's post. But I must clarify something. Don't let the posting on the nice apartment disillusioned you. The hubby and I are not living la vida rico. We are the average working poor couple. It just so happened that we copped an extra nice Apt at the right time. We rented our Apt when Caracas and Venezuela was in the midst of all their political problems. The locals here with Apts were literally giving them away as a means to get foreign currency and flee the country. So we had more than our share of choices. Now things have stabalized a bit, the people realizing that fleeing the country isn't solving the problem, and trading in foreign currencies is illegal so the tables have turned. At the same time, many of them are now selling the Apts or have raised the rents to astronomical prices. Our current Apt is on the market for over $4,000 U.S. In no way in hell or heavens, our company would pay that price for an apt. So we enjoyed it while we can, and now going back to reality. We had the hardest time finding an Apt to rent within our budget in our new search, but we prevailed and found one. Now that I got that outta de way.
Last week, I stirred up a ruffle asking where people got their blog names, but didn't reveal the source of mine. So in all fairness, here goes. Campfyah was given to me by an old flame of mine. I was looking for a name for my email address and couldn't think of an original one. My flame suggested that I use the name that we both associate our heated friendship with. It was that we are always camping out and creating fire. Hence Campfyah the spelling of "fyah" derived from my favorite soca band at the time Xrossfyah. Now the secret is out.
Was there ever somone in your life that you were close to but lost touch of and really wanted to reconnect with? I had a dream last night about such a perosn. The story goes like this. me and this person had a really close friendship or many years. Everyone knew how special this person was to me. We drifted ways when we were young adults and seeking to find ourselves only to be reconnected after many years and we connected and rekindled our friendship like if there was no break. Then once again, we drifted apart and lost contact with each other. The second time, although there was no animonisty or bad feelings, we did realize that the friendship needed some space. I thought that somehow, we would reconnect and carry on, but we never did.
I don't know where my friend is and vice versa. I often think about my friend and how their life is going. I'm always reminded of them in things I see or do. I've wondered on several occasions if I should try to search my friend out and reconnect our friendship, but I never make the move. I know that if we did connect again, that our friendship will be great. Some people tell me to leave it alone, but I often wonder.
Well last night, I had the most vivid dream that my friend and I had reconnected. I saw them waiting at a bus stop in my village back in Bimshire. As far as I know, my friend has never visited my homeland. i stopped the bus and got off in much excitment, thinking that If I didn't I'd never see my friend again. We hugged, chatted and I took my friend to see all my family there. We talked about old times and just when we were finalizing our current contact info, I woke up. Boye was I pissed off, I wanted to go back to sleep, to finish the dream but I couldn't.
So now, I'm considering if I should try to seek out my friend to see what's happening in their life and if our friendship can be reconnected.
