I grew up in Montgomery County Maryland. I rarely went into Prince Georges County Maryland. Those of us in Montgomery County thought Prince Georges County was a vast wasteland.
Well, the years go by, I meet my wife, have a child and now I own real estate in Laurel MD. Now I live in Prince Georges County. The years go by and my life in Montgomery County Maryland seems so far away. On occassion, when I am showing property, I drive through an old neighborhood I use to know. I see houses where some old friends use to live. I find myself, like all of us, wondering, ‘What ever happened to so and so?’
Well now I know
Old ‘so and so’ has looked me up on Facebook and found me! I am amazed at how Facebook has brought my past back to life. Just yesterday, a woman I knew when I was 13 dropped a note in my email asking how I have been. That was 35 years ago! But I do remember her.
And she knows people. People from my past. Suddenly, my past is coming at me at warp speed! Now it dosn’t matter where I live….the tech age keeps us all connected.
