One of These Days

Neil Young is awesome. From what I've read, he was a bit of a creative sphincter* when he was younger, but apparently at some point something changed, and he became this really friendly guy. Of course, I've never met him, but even if you look only to his album art, and listen to his music, you can see the change.

In one of his later albums, the great Harvest Moon, Neil wrote:

One of these days, I'm gonna sit down and write a long letter to all the good friends I've known. And I'm gonna try and thank them all for the good times together, though so apart we've grown. [...] And I've never tried to burn any bridges, though I know I've let some good things go.

Well, recently I had the same feeling. I didn't write any letters, but I wrote some good friends that I've drifted away from and not spoken to in years. It wasn't a life changing experience, but it made me realize, especially after being somewhat nomadic for the last half a decade, that I've been lucky enough to know some really good people.

And that's a really wonderful feeling.
