There’s no time like the present, according to the old adage. While it seems prudent to be in the moment, there’s something to be said for revisiting the past once in a while, and planning for the future often comes in handy. The past week provided opportunities to do all three, and I’m still basking in the glow of reconnecting with old friends, thanks to social networking. For those of you who have chosen to eschew Facebook (and I’m sure you have your reasons) I’m here to testify. I hit a milestone on the site today totaling one thousand “friends” on FB (www.facebook.com) and while that may seem absurd, without the Internet wunderkind, Mark Zuckerberg, my reunion with childhood chums scattered around the country would likely never have occurred.
